There is a problem with function inet_ntoa
Following line is used in the code
strcpy (ip_addr, inet_ntoa (((struct sockaddr_in *)
this line is not called in loop
here ip_addr is declare as
static char ip_addr[MAX_IPLEN];
When I run the splint, it is giving the following warning is displaying
New fresh storage (type char *) passed as implicitly temp
(not released): inet_ntoa(((struct sockaddr_in
A memory leak has been detected. Storage allocated locally is not
before the last reference to it is lost. (Use -mustfreefresh to
Does it really do with inet_ntoa() function ?
Like if we read manual of it
We can find the sentence that
The inet_ntoa() function converts the Internet host address in given
in network byte order to a string in standard numbers-and-dots notation.
The string is returned in a statically allocated buffer, which
subsequent calls will overwrite.
Please not that
inet_ntoa() is called only ones
Thank in advance
I really thank for the response that I am getting on this blog.
Thanks and Regards
