What platform are you on?

inet_aton is a standard part of the library which implements tcp/ip 
support.  It provides the facility to translates host addresses in text 
format to host addresses as series of hex digits.   Do a man inet_aton and 
something should pop up.  Are you getting a link error?  Or is it 
complaining about not finding the header?  Or is it not building it's test 
program happily?
