    programming in IPv4 and IPv6 settings in linux

    Hi everyone. I am a noob to linux programming.

    I am programming a small application in C.

    I need to pass around all the IPv4 and Ipv6 settings to different functions.

    Is there a structure out there in linux land that already exists for packing up IPv4 and IPv6 settings (address, netmask, gateway, etc)?

    Or do I need to define my own structure?

    See this guide, particularly section 9.24 "struct sockaddr and pals". Also look up getaddrinfo() and inet_pton().
