Represents an IPv4 or IPv6 address. The family field indicates the address type. The addr field is either the IPv4 address or the IPv6 flow info. The addr1-4 fields are the IPv6 address, or invalid for an IPv4 address. The scope field is the IPv6 scope, or invalid for an IPv4 address.
This class is modelled after the C data structure for holding socket addresses for both IPv4 and IPv6
name method to obtain address/hostname and port/service as Strings.
class val NetAddress is Equatable[NetAddress val] ref
new iso create() : NetAddress iso^
Returns true for an IPv4 address.
fun box ip4() : Bool val
Returns true for an IPv6 address.
fun box ip6() : Bool val
Returns the host and service name.
reversedns is an instance of
DNSLookupAuth a DNS lookup will be executed and the hostname for this address is returned as first element of the result tuple. If no hostname could be found, an error is raised. If
None the plain IP address is given and no DNS lookup is executed.
false the numeric port is returned as second element of the result tuple. If it is
true the port is translated into its corresponding servicename (e.g. port 80 is returned as
Internally this method uses the POSIX C function
fun box name( reversedns: (AmbientAuth val | NetAuth val | DNSAuth val | None val) = reference, servicename: Bool val = false) : (String val , String val) ?
fun box eq( that: NetAddress box) : Bool val
fun box host_eq( that: NetAddress box) : Bool val
For platforms (OSX/FreeBSD) with
length field as part of its
struct sockaddr definition, returns the
length. Else (Linux/Windows) returns the size of
fun box length() : U8 val
fun box family() : U8 val
Returns port number in host byte order.
fun box port() : U16 val
Returns IPv6 scope identifier: Unicast, Anycast, Multicast and unassigned scopes.
fun box scope() : U32 val
Returns IPV4 address (
_addr field in the class) if
False then the contents are invalid.
fun box ipv4_addr() : U32 val
Returns IPV6 address as the 4-tuple (say
a._1 = _addr1 // Bits 0-32 of the IPv6 address in host byte order.
a._2 = _addr2 // Bits 33-64 of the IPv6 address in host byte order.a._3 = _addr3 // Bits 65-96 of the IPv6 address in host byte order. `a._4 = _addr4 // Bits 97-128 of the IPv6 address in host byte order.
The contents of the 4-tuple returned are valid only if
fun box ipv6_addr() : (U32 val , U32 val , U32 val , U32 val)
fun box ne( that: NetAddress val) : Bool val
