Subject: very old getaddrinfo manpage
Date: Tue, 09 Jan 2007 03:44:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

A google search for "getaddrinfo example" showed
as the 4th item. In it the manpage is dated 1995 and claims that
getaddrinfo is not thread-safe. I'm not familiar with Ecos in any way,
shape, or form, but I'm curious: Are you really using such an old
library? If not, the prevalence of this page in google is a real
disservice to unsuspecting newcomers of socket programming and could use
a bit of updating.

Thanks for your time.
