I tried looking up answers for this with little success…any help is
appreciated, bear with my newness to Ruby.
The application I am working on can store ip addresses in a DB. They are
accessed by different platforms so the plan is to store IPs in network
order and display as host order.
I cannot find the following routines in ruby land to aid with the
inet_addr - to store the IP as network ordered
inet_ntoa - to retrieve the IP as host ordered
How do people deal with these conversions? I assume dealing with Endian
issues affects several of you folks?
Any help is greatly appreciated…sorry if this has been covered before.
