Good point.
Yet another reason not to use gethostbyname.
I think it's time to make the prohibition official.

I sure hope the Cygwin 1.7, which just released yesterday to formal beta trial, and brings in getaddrinfo() for my win 2000 porting box, _works_ -- perhaps deprecate it for a while first (understanding it is stated as 'prohibit all new uses ...')?

+# Not only do they fail to deal well with ipv6, but the gethostby*

I think you mean to say here that the implementation you are encountering is not thread safe

# Avoid useless parentheses like those in this example:
# #if defined (SYMBOL) || defined (SYM2)

I infer you can divine the future as to how the g++ 4.7.x implementers will decide parenthesizing will be first warned, and then error-ed ;)
