Function SocketInetAddr() Professional

Converts an internet address formatted as dotted octet string to a numeric IP address.

SocketInetAddr( <cIPAddress> ) --> nIPAddress
This is a character string representing a internet address in dottet octet notation ("")

The function returns a numeric internet address in network byte order. If the passed string does not comply with the dotted octet notation, the returned value is equivalent to INADDR_NONE. The passed string is not valid when a portion of "a.b.c.d" is missing or when one of the four numbers encoded in the string lies outside the range of 0 and 255.
