LIBRARY


.Lb libc

SYNOPSIS


.In arpa/inet.h

or


.In netinet/in.h uint32_t htonl "uint32_t hostlong" uint16_t htons "uint16_t hostshort" uint32_t ntohl "uint32_t netlong" uint16_t ntohs "uint16_t netshort"

DESCRIPTION

These routines convert 16 and 32 bit quantities between network byte order and host byte order. On machines which have a byte order which is the same as the network order, routines are defined as null macros.

These routines are most often used in conjunction with Internet addresses and ports as returned by gethostbyname(3) and getservent(3).
