ARES_INET_NTOP(3)	   Library Functions Manual	     ARES_INET_NTOP(3)

NAME
       ares_inet_ntop  - convert a network format address to presentation for-
       mat

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ares.h>

       const char *
       ares_inet_ntop(int af, const void *src, char *dst, ares_socklen_t size);

DESCRIPTION
       This is a portable version with the identical functionality of the com-
       monly available inet_ntop.

       The  ares_inet_ntop()  function	converts a numeric address into	a text
       string suitable for presentation. The af	 argument  shall  specify  the
       family  of the address. This can	be AF_INET or AF_INET6.	 The src argu-
       ment points to a	buffer holding an IPv4 address if the af  argument  is
       AF_INET,	or an IPv6 address if the af argument is AF_INET6; the address
       must be in network byte order. The dst  argument	 points	 to  a	buffer
       where  the  function  stores the	resulting text string; it shall	not be
       NULL. The size argument specifies the size of this buffer, which	 shall
       be  large  enough to hold the text string (INET_ADDRSTRLEN (16) charac-
       ters for	IPv4, INET6_ADDRSTRLEN (46) characters for IPv6).
