    Command:

    inet_ntop

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <arpa/inet.h>
    
           const char *inet_ntop(int af, const void *src,
                                 char *dst, socklen_t size);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This  function  converts  the  network  address structure src in the af
           address family into a character string.  The resulting string is copied
           to the buffer pointed to by dst, which must be a non-null pointer.  The
           caller specifies the number of bytes available in this  buffer  in  the
           argument size.
    
           inet_ntop()  extends  the  inet_ntoa(3)  function  to  support multiple
           address families, inet_ntoa(3) is now considered to  be  deprecated  in
           favor  of  inet_ntop().   The  following address families are currently
           supported:
    
           AF_INET
                  src points to a struct in_addr (in network byte order) which  is
                  converted  to an IPv4 network address in the dotted-decimal for-
                  mat,  "ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd".   The  buffer  dst  must  be  at  least
                  INET_ADDRSTRLEN bytes long.
    
           AF_INET6
                  src points to a struct in6_addr (in network byte order) which is
                  converted to a representation of this address in the most appro-
                  priate IPv6 network address format for this address.  The buffer
                  dst must be at least INET6_ADDRSTRLEN bytes long.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On success, inet_ntop() returns a non-null pointer  to  dst.   NULL  is
           returned if there was an error, with errno set to indicate the error.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EAFNOSUPPORT
                  af was not a valid address family.
    
           ENOSPC The  converted  address  string  would  exceed the size given by
                  size.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           POSIX.1-2001.  Note that RFC 2553 defines a prototype  where  the  last
           argument  size is of type size_t.  Many systems follow RFC 2553.  Glibc
           2.0 and 2.1 have size_t, but 2.2 and later have socklen_t.
    
    
    

    BUGS

           AF_INET6 converts IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses into an IPv6 format.
