INET_NTOP(3)                        Linux Programmer's Manual                        INET_NTOP(3)

       inet_ntop - convert IPv4 and IPv6 addresses from binary to text form

       #include <arpa/inet.h>

       const char *inet_ntop(int af, const void *src,
                             char *dst, socklen_t size);

       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:

              src points to a struct in_addr (in network byte order) which  is  converted  to  an
              IPv4  network  address in the dotted-decimal format, "ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd".  The buffer
              dst must be at least INET_ADDRSTRLEN bytes long.

              src points to a struct in6_addr (in network byte order) which  is  converted  to  a
              representation  of this address in the most appropriate IPv6 network address format
              for this address.  The buffer dst must be at least INET6_ADDRSTRLEN bytes long.

       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.

              af was not a valid address family.

       ENOSPC The converted address string would exceed the size given by size.

       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.

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