The Windows Sockets inet_ntoa
function converts a network address into a string in dotted format.
char FAR * inet_ntoa (
[in] A structure which represents an Internet host address.
This function takes an Internet address structure specified by the in
parameter. It returns an ASCII string representing the address in ".''
notation as "a.b.c.d''. Note that the string returned by inet_ntoa
resides in memory which is allocated by Windows Sockets. The application
should not make any assumptions about the way in which the memory is allocated. The
data is guaranteed to be valid until the next Windows Sockets function call
within the same thread, but no longer.
If no error occurs, inet_ntoa
returns a char pointer to a static buffer containing the text address in
standard ".'' notation. Otherwise, it returns NULL. The data should be copied
before another Windows Sockets call is made.
