SYNOPSIS

#include <arpa/inet.h>

DESCRIPTION

The in_port_t and in_addr_t types shall be defined as described in <netinet/in.h> .

The in_addr structure shall be defined as described in <netinet/in.h> .

The INET_ADDRSTRLEN and INET6_ADDRSTRLEN macros shall be defined as described in <netinet/in.h> .

The following shall either be declared as functions, defined as macros, or both. If functions are declared, function prototypes shall be provided.

uint32_t htonl(uint32_t); uint16_t htons(uint16_t); uint32_t ntohl(uint32_t); uint16_t ntohs(uint16_t);

The uint32_t and uint16_t types shall be defined as described in <inttypes.h> .

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

in_addr_t inet_addr(const char *); char *inet_ntoa(struct in_addr); const char *inet_ntop(int, const void *restrict, char *restrict, socklen_t); int inet_pton(int, const char *restrict, void *restrict);

Inclusion of the <arpa/inet.h> header may also make visible all symbols from <netinet/in.h> and <inttypes.h>.
