Ticket #1724 (assigned patch)
Add getprotobyname to Socket PMCs
|Reported by:||ocharles||Owned by:||nwellnhof|
I couldn't see any implementation of getprotobyname which seems like a standard function that should be available. This adds it to Socket PMCs.
I'm not entirely sure this is the correct approach - because normally you'd call this before creating a socket object. For PIR this is OK, but in something like Perl 6 this will create a Socket object to call getprotobyname, then destroy it, then probably create another one straight after.
Anyway, this is the best I could come up with given my extremely limited knowledge of Parrot - please advise!
