SYNOPSIS

       #include <arpa/inet.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The  in_port_t  and  in_addr_t  types  shall be defined as described in
       <netinet/in.h> .

       The in_addr structure shall be defined as described in <netinet/in.h> .

       The INET_ADDRSTRLEN    and INET6_ADDRSTRLEN  macros shall be defined as
       described in <netinet/in.h> .

       The following shall either be declared as functions, defined as macros,
       or both. If  functions  are  declared,  function  prototypes  shall  be
       provided.

              uint32_t htonl(uint32_t);
              uint16_t htons(uint16_t);
              uint32_t ntohl(uint32_t);
              uint16_t ntohs(uint16_t);

       The  uint32_t  and  uint16_t  types  shall  be  defined as described in
       <inttypes.h> .

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as
       macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

              in_addr_t    inet_addr(const char *);
              char        *inet_ntoa(struct in_addr);
              const char  *inet_ntop(int, const void *restrict, char *restrict,
                               socklen_t);
              int          inet_pton(int, const char *restrict, void *restrict);

       Inclusion of the <arpa/inet.h> header may also make visible all symbols
       from <netinet/in.h> and <inttypes.h>.
