gethostbyname & RES_USE_INET6
I am facing some problem while using the gethostbyname() API for IPv6
address. I have the following entry in my /etc/hosts
$ cat /etc/hosts
When i try to get the entry for gethostbyname("localhost6.localdomain")
the return value is NULL.
But when i set the RES_OPTIONS as
$ export RES_OPTIONS=inet6
gethostbyname() works fine.
Is it required for me set the environment variable RES_OPTIONS every time?
Or this needs to be set in any of the networking functions?
Please help me out in this regard.
Thanks & Regards,
