Oops!!! u fixed it Binand. Succefully compiled and got ouput as my
requirement!! I was looking at that boring error since after noon.
Thanks a lot Binand
I guess that is the best way to get the IP of the interface. But that
structure (ifa_list)being a link list, i guess all the ip addresses
including the aliases are stored in that. Let me try to find out how
to give a kick to aliased ip addresses (if there is)!!
Imagination is more important than knowledge...
