NAME

       ares_inet_pton - convert an IPv4 or IPv6 address from text to binary form

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ares.h>

       const char *ares_inet_pton(int af, const char *src, void *dst);

DESCRIPTION

       This  is  a  portable  version  with the identical functionality of the commonly available
       inet_pton.

       The ares_inet_pton() function converts the address in its standard text presentation  form
       into its numeric binary form. The af argument shall specify the family of the address. The
       AF_INET and AF_INET6 address families shall be supported. The src argument points  to  the
       string being passed in. The dst argument points to a buffer into which the function stores
       the numeric address; this shall be large enough to hold the numeric address (32  bits  for
       AF_INET, 128 bits for AF_INET6).
