fmt_ip6 - write a formatted ASCII representation of an IPv6 number
#include <ip6.h> unsigned int fmt_ip6(char *dest,const char ip);
fmt_ip6 formats an IPv6 number in ASCII representation from ip and writes the result into dest. It returns the number of bytes written. fmt_ip6 will apply "::" compression to the output. If ip is an IPv4-mapped IPv6 address, fmt_ip6 will output the last 4 bytes as IPv4 number in dotted-decimal notation. If dest equals FMT_LEN (i.e. is zero), fmt_ip6 returns the number of bytes it would have written. fmt_ip6 does not append \0. For convenience, ip6.h defines the integer IP6_FMT to be big enough to contain every possible fmt_ip6 output plus \0.
#include <ip6.h> char buf[IP6_FMT]; char ip; buf[fmt_ip6(buf,ip)]=0;
