lib/net-hostent......FAILED at test 6

/etc/hosts says
127.0.0.1 loopback localhost

known failure.

Is localhost in the aliases for gethostbyname ('localhost') on Win32?
If so, I think I can make a regression test that copes.

Another slightly related problem I have is that 'localhost' isn't
mapped on a box I have. I'm not quite sure what to do about these
tests since they fail. There's no way of knowing of the module is
broken or if 'localhost' isn't mapped. I'm up for suggestions.

The box is True64.

so you get
ok 1
not ok 2
not ok 3
not ok 4
not ok 5
not ok 6

because Net​::hostent loads successfully, but that's it?

Maybe we don't ok on the first gethost('localhost'), but print a comment
and skip all the rest of the tests?
Can we go for one of the root servers? Hmm. but that would fail on your
box when it's not plugged into any network.

Yes, that's what I used to get.

Something must have changed within the last few patches that changed
this cuz I just rsync'd ( last one was 2-3 days ago IIRC ) and ran
the process w/o a hitch.

The thing is, I had to make io_sock/io_multihomed look for 127.0.0.1
instead of localhost to work on that box and now net-hostent.t works
just great.

Oh well, I guess.

Is localhost in the aliases for gethostbyname ('localhost') on Win32?

Win32 is not a uniform platform in this area. As I recall NT3.*, Win95,
NT4, Win98, ... are potentially different.
Also if I recall correctly we at least used to use the fact that Win32
returns the system's name when passed 127.0.0.1 to mimic "hostname".

Win32 is excluded from these tests from that very reason - but it
seems that there may be too many variations on this - and the tests
for 127.0.0.1 <-> localhost might turn out to have been a bad idea.

Is it safe to test to see that
1 lookup on "127.0.0.1" doesn't fail?
2 if lookup on "localhost" passes that it matches the result for the lookup
  on "127.0.0.1"?
2a or check that if "localhost" returns an IP address of 127.0.0.1 that the
  result of the result match "localhost"'s result?

(can windows do a lookup on "localhost" and return the IP of a non loopback
interface? in which case we'd need 2a)

I think it's safe to test for failure of a lookup - but for cases that
fall outside the /^localhost(?​:\..+)?$/ space, it could be almost
anything. loopback seems to be another case we might want to check.

I'm not so worried about 'passing' on Windows (as we do now), more
worried about the strange unices.
