    Dev-C++ and my IP

    I am writing my first good winsock program, and it requires the IP address of the host computer. I have searched the forums, and my books and tutorials, and have not found a good way to do this. The thing that hinder's me is that i con't have inet_atoi(), or don't know how to use it. If someone knows how to do this, or has some insight, i would be very appreciative.

    I'll bet a dime that the IP address for the host computer is 127.0.0.1.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    I think he means external IP address.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    ip?

    what they said is the local. If your on a router or shared connection the ip everyone out here sees is the same for each computer. If it is one computer on the web directly just go to ipchicken.com

    He wants to find his computer's internet IP from within his program, not a website.

    Sorry, I don't know how to do it either.
    Maybe there is some documentation on inet_atoi() somewhere out there on google or something...

    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
