ARES_INET_PTON(3)	   Library Functions Manual	     ARES_INET_PTON(3)

NAME
       ares_inet_pton  -  convert  an IPv4 or IPv6 address from	text to	binary
       form

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ares.h>

       const char *ares_inet_pton(int af, const	char *src, void	*dst);

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

       The ares_inet_pton() function converts the address in its standard text
       presentation form into its numeric binary form. The af  argument	 shall
       specify	the  family  of	 the address. The AF_INET and AF_INET6 address
       families	shall be supported. The	src argument points to the string  be-
       ing passed in. The dst argument points to a buffer into which the func-
       tion stores the numeric address;	this shall be large enough to hold the
       numeric address (32 bits	for AF_INET, 128 bits for AF_INET6).

AVAILABILITY
       made properly publicly available	in c-ares for real in version 1.10.0
