Constructor & Destructor Documentation

   ost::IPV6Host::IPV6Host (const char * host = NULL)
       Create a new host address for a specific internet host. The internet host can be specified
       in a null terminated ASCII string and include either the physical host address or the DNS
       name of a host machine. Hence, an IPV6Host ('www.voxilla.org') can be directly declaired
       in this manner.

       Defaults to the IP address that represents the interface matching 'gethostname()'.

       Parameters:
           host dns or physical address of an Internet host.

   ost::IPV6Host::IPV6Host (struct in6_addr addr)
       Convert a system socket binary address such as may be returned through the accept() call
       or getsockpeer() into an internet host address object.

       Parameters:
           addr binary address of internet host.

Member Function Documentation

   IPV6Host& ost::IPV6Host::operator&= (const IPV6Mask & mask)
       Mask the internet host address object with a network mask address. This is commonly used
       to coerce an address by subnet.
