Summary 0000845: Two variables not included in System Interfaces
Description The in6addr_any and in6addr_loopback variables are defined in netinet/in.h, the only other reference to either of these is in6addr_any which is referenced in Section 2.10.20, "Compatibility with IPv4".

Other variables (signgam, stderr, stdin, stdout, daylight, timezone, tzname, optarg, optind, opterr and optopt) are all documented in the System Interfaces section. In fact, the stderr, stdin and stdout variables are documented on their own System Interface page.

Is this intentional or an oversight?
Desired Action Add in6addr_any and in6addr_loopback to the System Interfaces section, either in their own page, or on an existing page.

On page 475 on line 16090 add the prefix:
keeping IP6 shading on the entire line.

After page 1122 insert a new page (with the SYNOPSIS IP6 shaded):

    in6addr_any, in6addr_loopback --- IPv6 address variables

    #include <netinet/in.h>

    const struct in6_addr in6addr_any;
    const struct in6_addr in6addr_loopback;

    The in6addr_any variable is initialized by the system to contain the
    wildcard IPv6 address (::).

    The in6addr_loopback variable is initialized by the system to contain
    the loopback IPv6 address (::1).


    No errors are defined.



    These variables were only described on the XBD <netinet/in.h>
    page in earlier versions of this standard.


    bind(), connect()

    XBD <netinet/in.h>

    First released in Issue 8. Derived from Issue 7 XBD <netinet/in.h>.
