Post subject:  IPv6 support

I know adoption of IPv6 is still very very low but an IPv6 widget would be nice, along with whatever else is needed to support IPv6.
Thanks!

not sure what you mean by a "widget" here but...
Since PureBasic more or less uses the underlying OS API for most stuff. If the OS support IPv6 so should PureBasic, and if some functions do not it will hopefully not be much work to fully support IPv6 ips.

Sorry, slip of the tongue. I clearly meant "gadget" here ...

There's support in Windows at least, not sure about the other platforms:

"Support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), a new suite of standard protocols for the Network layer of the Internet, is built into the latest versions of Microsoft Windows, which include Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Windows XP with Service Pack 1, Windows XP Embedded SP1, and Windows CE .NET.

IPv6 is designed to solve many of the problems of the current version of IP (known as IPv4) such as address depletion, security, autoconfiguration, and extensibility. Its use will also expand the capabilities of the Internet to enable a variety of valuable and exciting scenarios, including peer-to-peer and mobile applications."

Just making sure it's on Fred's radar for the future (though I'm sure it already is).
