NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       join.ipaddresses - Acceptable formats for string representations
 of IP addresses

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       A character string representation of  an  IP  address,  as
       used  within  JOIN, is written as one, two, three, or four
       numeric fields with a period (.), separating  each  field,
       and  without  interleaving  whitespace.  Each field corresponds
 to an octet, and therefore can have a value in  the
       range 0..255 (decimal).  Each of the octets may be written
       as a decimal, octal, or hexadecimal number, and  there  is
       no  requirement that each octet have the same radix. Octal
       values commence with a leading zero (0); hex  values  commence
 with either 0x or 0X.

       When  an  address  is written with fewer than four octets,
       the missing bytes are interpolated according to  the  following
  scheme, which shows how they would have been written
 with all four octets present:

                                                                                                       aaa.bbb.ddd      aaa.bbb.0.ddd

                                                                                                       aaa.ddd          aaa.0.0.ddd

                                                                                                       ddd              0.0.0.ddd
