I've placed properly-working getaddrinfo.c in
I'm using it with no problem.
There are tons of code dupliate, but I had no other choice.

IIRC they overload "file" or "dns" to mean both name resolution.
so "file dns" will mean "look at /etc/hosts for any hostname->address
translation. if failed, look at dns".
This makes more sense to me.
