GETNETENT

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
Updated: 2008-08-19
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

getnetent, getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr, setnetent, endnetent - get network entry  

SYNOPSIS

#include <netdb.h>

struct netent *getnetent(void);

struct netent *getnetbyname(const char *name);

struct netent *getnetbyaddr(uint32_t net, int type);

void setnetent(int stayopen);

void endnetent(void);
 

DESCRIPTION

The getnetent() function reads the next entry from the networks database and returns a netent structure containing the broken-out fields from the entry. A connection is opened to the database if necessary.

The getnetbyname() function returns a netent structure for the entry from the database that matches the network name.

The getnetbyaddr() function returns a netent structure for the entry from the database that matches the network number net of type type. The net argument must be in host byte order.

The setnetent() function opens a connection to the database, and sets the next entry to the first entry. If stayopen is nonzero, then the connection to the database will not be closed between calls to one of the getnet*() functions.

The endnetent() function closes the connection to the database.

The netent structure is defined in <netdb.h> as follows:

struct netent {
    char      *n_name;     /* official network name */
    char     **n_aliases;  /* alias list */
    int        n_addrtype; /* net address type */
    uint32_t   n_net;      /* network number */
}

The members of the netent structure are:

n_name
The official name of the network.
n_aliases
A NULL-terminated list of alternative names for the network.
n_addrtype
The type of the network number; always AF_INET.
n_net
The network number in host byte order.
 

RETURN VALUE

The getnetent(), getnetbyname() and getnetbyaddr() functions return a pointer to a statically allocated netent structure, or a null pointer if an error occurs or the end of the file is reached.  

FILES

/etc/networks
networks database file
 

CONFORMING TO

4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.  

NOTES

In glibc versions before 2.2, the net argument of getnetbyaddr() was of type long.
