NAME

       FBB::Hostname - Contains name/address info about a host

SYNOPSIS

       #include <bobcat/hostname>
       Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

       FBB::Hostname  objects  inherit  from  Hostent,  and offers information about a host, like
       Hostent. Apart from being initialized by a hostname or host  address,  they  can  also  be
       initialized  by  a  FBB::InetAddress object. Most of the functionality of an FBB::Hostname
       object is available through its parent-class FBB::Hostent.

NAMESPACE

       FBB
       All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned  in  this  man-page,  are
       defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

       FBB::Hostent

CONSTRUCTORS

       o      Hostname():
              The default constructor initializes an empty FBB::Hostname object.

       o      Hostname((std::string const &host)):
              This constructor initializes an FBB::Hostname object from a string representing the
              name or dotted decimal address of a host. An FBB::Exception object is thrown if the
              hostname information could not be retrieved.

       o      Hostname(InetAddress const &inetAddress):
              This constructor initializes an FBB::Hostname object from an InetAddress object. An
              FBB::Exception object is thrown if the hostname information could not be retrieved.
              The copy constructor is available.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

       All  members  of  FBB::Hostent  are  available, as FBB::Hostname inherits from this class.
       There are no additional members.

EXAMPLE

       #include <iostream>

       #include <bobcat/hostname>
       #include <bobcat/exception>

       using namespace std;
       using namespace FBB;

       int main(int argc, char **argv)
       {
           while (true)
           {
               cout << "Enter name or address:\n";

               string str;

               if (!getline(cin, str))
                   return 0;

               if (str == "")
                   break;

               try
               {
                   Hostname h(str);

                   cout << "Official name:\n";
                       cout << h.hostname() << endl;

                   cout << "Aliases:\n";
                   for (size_t idx = 0; idx < h.nAliases(); idx++)
                       cout << h.alias(idx) << " ";
                   cout << endl;

                   cout << "Adresses:\n";
                   for (size_t idx = 0; idx < h.nAddresses(); idx++)
                       cout << h.dottedDecimalAddress(idx) << " ";
                   cout << endl;
               }
               catch (exception const &err)
               {
                   cout << err.what() << endl;
               }
           }
       }
