operator=

Assign from another address.

scope_id

The scope ID of the address.

to_bytes

Get the address in bytes, in network byte order.

to_string

Get the address as a string.

(Deprecated: Use other overload.) Get the address as a string.

to_v4

(Deprecated: Use make_address_v4().) Converts an IPv4-mapped or IPv4-compatible address to an IPv4 address.

v4_compatible

(Deprecated: No replacement.) Create an IPv4-compatible IPv6 address.

v4_mapped
