RE: Where did freeipdb IP utility site go?

Particularly where you need to mix them with IPv4 addresses. I know postgresql has an ipv6 type but I was hoping for something more portable. The best I could come up with was packed decimal(39) and assume that if more than 32 bits are set it's IPv6 (ignoring the special case of all zeros etc.) The other would be to just use 4 unsigned long ints similarly but it makes comparison and other ops clunky. -- -Barry Shein The World | bzs@xxxxxxxxxxxx | http://www.TheWorld.com Purveyors to the Trade | Voice: 800-THE-WRLD | Login: Nationwide Software Tool & Die | Public Access Internet | SINCE 1989 *oo*
