NAME

FBB::Hostname - Contains name/address info about a host

SYNOPSIS

#include <bobcat/hostname>
Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

FBB::Hostname objects inherit from Hostent, and offers information about a host, like Hostent. Apart from being initialized by a hostname or host address, they can also be initialized by a FBB::InetAddress object. Most of the functionality of an FBB::Hostname object is available through its parent-class FBB::Hostent.

NAMESPACE

FBB
All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

FBB::Hostent

CONSTRUCTORS

o

Hostname():

The default constructor initializes an empty FBB::Hostname object.

o

Hostname((std::string const &host)):

This constructor initializes an FBB::Hostname object from a string representing the name or dotted decimal address of a host. An FBB::Exception object is thrown if the hostname information could not be retrieved.

o

Hostname(InetAddress const &inetAddress):

This constructor initializes an FBB::Hostname object from an InetAddress object. An FBB::Exception object is thrown if the hostname information could not be retrieved.

Copy and move constructors (and assignment operators) are available.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

All members of FBB::Hostent are available, as FBB::Hostname inherits from this class. There are no additional members.

EXAMPLE

#include <iostream>

#include <bobcat/hostname>
#include <bobcat/exception>

using namespace std;
using namespace FBB;

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
while (true)
{
cout << "Enter name or address:\n";

string str;

if (!getline(cin, str))
return 0;

if (str == "")
break;

try
{
Hostname h(str);

cout << "Official name:\n";
cout << h.hostname() << endl;

cout << "Aliases:\n";
for (size_t idx = 0; idx < h.nAliases(); idx++)
cout << h.alias(idx) << " ";
cout << endl;

cout << "Adresses:\n";
for (size_t idx = 0; idx < h.nAddresses(); idx++)
cout << h.dottedDecimalAddress(idx) << " ";
cout << endl;
}
catch (exception const &err)
{
cout << err.what() << endl;
}
}
}
