string inet_ntoa(ipaddr_t *addr)

inet_ntoa takes a pointer to an IPv4 address and returns it as a dotted quad decimal string. This is similar to inet_ntoa() from libnsl as described in inet(3SOCKET), however this D version takes a pointer to the IPv4 address rather than the address itself. The returned string is allocated out of scratch memory, and is therefore valid only for the duration of the clause. If insufficient scratch space is available, inet_ntoa does not execute and an error is generated.
