scan_ip6_flat — parse an IPv6 number in flat ASCII representation

Syntax

#include <ip6.h>

int scan_ip6_flat(const char *src,char ip[16]);

Description

scan_ip6_flat parses an IPv6 number in flat ASCII representation from src and writes the result into ip. It returns the number of bytes read from src or 0 if the parsing failed.

scan_ip6_flat accepts upper and lower case hex letters.

The flat representation should have been output by fmt_ip6_flat.

Example

#include <str.h>
#include <ip6.h>

char buf[]="00000000000000000000000000000001";
char ip[16];
if (scan_ip6_flat(buf,ip) != str_len(buf))
parse_error();
