Would you provide a link or two
I don't understand. A link to what?

Because I don't know how to write that support.
#ifdef __WIN32 in the code and the true branch uses some
inet_addr() function (while the false branch used
inet_aton() and now uses
I have no idea how to parse (nor any chance to test) network addresses on MS-Windows.
