The inet_ntop() and inet_pton() functions conform to X/Open Networking
Services Issue 5.2 (``XNS5.2''). Note that inet_pton() does not accept
1-, 2-, or 3-part dotted addresses; all four parts must be specified and
are interpreted only as decimal values. This is a narrower input set
than that accepted by inet_aton().
The spec is quite explicit that inet_pton is not expected to accept the
abbreviated forms or any non-decimal values.
