.TH ARES_INET_NTOP 3 "17 Feb 2013"
.SH NAME
ares_inet_ntop \- convert a network format address to presentation format
.SH SYNOPSIS
.nf
.B #include <ares.h>
.PP
.B const char *
.B ares_inet_ntop(int af, const void *src, char *dst, ares_socklen_t size);
.fi
.SH DESCRIPTION
This is a portable version with the identical functionality of the commonly
available \fIinet_ntop\fP.
The ares_inet_ntop() function converts a numeric address into a text string
suitable for presentation. The \fBaf\fP argument shall specify the family of
the address. This can be AF_INET or AF_INET6. The \fBsrc\fP argument 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 \fBdst\fP argument points to a buffer where the function stores the
resulting text string; it shall not be NULL. The \fBsize\fP argument specifies
the size of this buffer, which shall be large enough to hold the text string
(INET_ADDRSTRLEN (16) characters for IPv4, INET6_ADDRSTRLEN (46) characters
for IPv6).
