ost::IPV4Host::IPV4Host (const char * host = NULL)

Create a new host address for a specific internet host. The internet host can be specified in a null terminated ASCII string and include either the physical host address or the DNS name of a host machine. Hence, an IPV4Host ('www.voxilla.org') can be directly declaired in this manner.

Defaults to the IP address that represents the interface matching 'gethostname()'.

Parameters:

host dns or physical address of an Internet host.

 

ost::IPV4Host::IPV4Host (struct in_addr addr)

Convert a system socket binary address such as may be returned through the accept() call or getsockpeer() into an internet host address object. Parameters:

addr binary address of internet host.

 

Member Function Documentation

 

IPV4Host& ost::IPV4Host::operator&= (const IPV4Mask & mask)

Mask the internet host address object with a network mask address. This is commonly used to coerce an address by subnet.  

IPV4Address& ost::IPV4Host::operator= (unsigned long addr) [inline]

Allows assignment from the return of functions like inet_addr() or htonl().

Reimplemented from ost::IPV4Address.
