Dear Paul Evans, I am currently extending a multi platform software package (Unix/Linux/Windows, C/C++ and Perl) from IPv4 to IPv6 (dual stack mode). The C-world is fine since I can easily handle the differences between the Unix and Windows world. However there are some issues with the Socket module on the Perl side. As expected, with MS Windows some POSIX calls are missing in the MS winsock libraries or have at least different names, e.g.: inet_ntop() == InetNtopA() http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/windows/desktop/cc805843(v=vs.85).aspx inet_pton() == InetPtonA() http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/windows/desktop/cc805844(v=vs.85).aspx Furthermore these functions became first available under Vista. My workaround for XP (still some customers :-(() is the use of WSAStringToAddress() http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/windows/desktop/ms742214(v=vs.85).aspx WSAAddressToString() http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/windows/desktop/ms741516(v=vs.85).aspx Both are available since Window 2000. In the Perl Socket module the XS functions inet_ntop() and inet_pton() are not implemented for Windows since the Makefile.PL sub check_for() cannot find them - which is correct and not a bug. I should mention that I use Active State Perl, version 5.18, which is build with MINGW. Would it be possible for you to implement these functions also for Windows? My way in the C-world is e.g (USOCKADDR is a union to wrap IPv6 & IPv4). #ifdef _WIN32 DWORD len = countof(str); WSAAddressToStringA(&(usockaddr.saddr),sizeof(USOCKADDR),NULL,str,&len); #else inet_ntop(usockaddr.af,&usockaddr,str,sizeof(str)); #endif I believe a similar #ifdef would be possible in the Socket.xs #ifdef _WIN32 // addr must have the proper AF assigned DWORD len = countof(str); WSAAddressToStringA(&addr,sizeof(addr),NULL,str,&len); #else inet_ntop(af, &addr, str, sizeof str); #endif The major work then seems to be the modification of the checks in Makefile.PL to account for the Windows specialities. On the other hand it would be a major advantage for all Perl users to have platform independent POSIX calls also working under Windows. Another option would be to add the WSA calls to the Socket.pm (only implemented with the Windows version) and then I can easily switch between POSIX and the WSA calls inside the Perl code. Right now I cannot implement IPv6 perl under Windows since both, POSIX and WSA, are missing. With best regards Carsten Dehning

Well, not having a Windows box I've no way to test it, even to know if this actually compiles, but find attached an attempt at a patch to hopefully implement it. At the very least, I know it still compiles around it on Linux. Let me know if that solves the problem, and if so I'll call it 2.013_001 and see what the smokers think. -- Paul Evans

Dear Paul, thank you so much for your immediate response. I appreciate your support. Thank you for the smart idea to #define within the .xs module. Since my MINGW patch.exe crashes (I don't care :-) ), please find attached the complete Socket.xs module. I did some minor additional changes to avoid MINGW-gcc complaints and to avoid the return of a hostname filled with stack-junk. Remove the croak() calls (I just used them for testing with junk arguments). I think you know exactly what to do. It's working nice :-) ...on my Win7 laptop. I'll be back in the institute next week and then I'll do the other platforms (XP/Vista/HP-UX/SGI-IRIX/AIX4+5/Linux Intel/Itanium etc....) During the last week I found some time to find out the reasons why inet_xxx() is missing under Windows. I removed my Active State Perl and installed Strawberry Perl ... same issue :-(. By the way, Active state is far more complete compared to Strawberry Perl. Both, Active State and Strawberry are based on MINGW, and in fact the incomplete MINGW header <ws2tcpip.h> causes the trouble. I saw this quite old MINGW ticket (summer 2012) ... http://sourceforge.net/p/mingw/bugs/1641/ and got an association and may cite Larry Wall: "The three principal virtues of a programmer are Laziness, ....." Nevertheless, the implementation via the WSA stuff is the best solution, since it will also work under XP (test that next week). I wish you a happy new year Carsten

I just tried the patch myself. It required defining HAS_GETADDRINFO, which seems to be undefined on Windows for historical reasons (it is only supported on Windows 2000 and later, but Perl is only supported on 2000+ anymore anyways, so that reason is no longer valid). But I also had to set the scope id to 0: sockaddr.sin6_scope_id = 0; before calling WSAAddressToStringA() with an IPv6 address. Let me know if you need a patch; the required change should be obvious in hindsight. Cheers, -Jan PS: Is there a reason the source is not on Github or some other public repo?

Dear Jan, in my last email you'll find attached a complete Socket.xs module (not just the patch), with some minor additional fixes to avoid gcc and Visual C compiler complaints. This works nice. The reason for my request is to have a Perl code without separating Unix and Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 .... and without doing some extra checks and find out whether inet_ntop or inet_pton are available or not. IPv6 came up first under XP (which might disappear soon), therefore a Sockets-module without inet_ntop etc. (the current situation) is OK for Windows 2000 and less. For me personally Windows XP would be the oldest platform. With best regards Carsten Dehning

I have been trying to get the IO-Socket-IP module compile correctly on the Windows platform. We need to add support for IPV6 for Perl 5.14.4. IO-Socket-IP module compiles and passes IPV6 tests on Linux x64 without any issues. Please see attached screenshots. I tried different Windows OS. Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows 8 with both Visual Studio 8 and Visual Studio 10. Enabled inet_ntop and inet_pton in config.VC64 config but i still get 'Vendor has not defined Socket macro' error when running IO-Socket-IP module tests. When compiling the updated Socket module; i see inet_ntop and inet_pton undefined (see attached screenshot) I see that there was a fix that was required to get this module working with Strawberry Perl : http://vinsworldcom.blogspot.com/2012/08/ipv6-in-perl-on-windows_20.html We most likely need a fix for standard Perl distribution to make this work on Windows.

I indepdently rewrote this patch, I didn't know this ticket exists. This patch uses WSAStringToAddress which is available in windows 95 and newer (really only 2000 and newer matter, native inet_pton is only on Vista and up, which is unacceptable since 2K and XP are supported. I thought of using RtlIpv4AddressToStringA from ntdll.dll but that supposedly XP and up. II didn't check a Win2K ntdll.dll to see if it is undocumented but implemented, but it doesn't matter since WSAStringToAddress works. The code is public domain (I guess) from SO http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13731243/what-is-the-windows-xp-equivalent-of-inet-pton-or-inetpton .
