module Netsockaddr

: sig

Parsing of socket addresses

type socksymbol = [
| `Inet of Unix.inet_addr * int
| `Inet_byname of string * int
| `Unix of string

Symbolic socket names:

  • `Inet(ip,port): An internet socket with IP ip and the given port
  • `Inet_byname(n,port): An internet socket with the IP resulting from the resolution of the name n, and with the given port
  • `Unix p: A Unix Domain socket with the path p

Use Uq_resolver.sockaddr_of_socksymbol to convert to a Unix.sockaddr (and resolve names).

val socksymbol_of_string : string -> socksymbol

Parses designations of the forms:

  • <IPv4>:port
  • [<IPv4_or_IPv6]:port
  • <name>:port
  • /path
  • ./path

Raises Failure on parse error.

val string_of_socksymbol : socksymbol -> string

The reverse function
