Feature #3953

Updated by akr (Akira Tanaka) over 9 years ago

=begin 
  
  I noticed that TCPSocket/UDPSocket only accept String IPs/Hostnames, but not IPAddr objects. This is counter-intuitive since IP Addresses, along with Hostnames, are used to connect/bind to sockets. 
 
      require 'socket' 
      require 'resolv' 
     
      ip = IPAddr.new(Resolv.getaddress('www.example.com')) 
      sock = TCPSocket.new(ip,80) 
      TypeError: can't convert IPAddr into String 
 	 from (irb):5:in `initialize' 
 	 from (irb):5:in `new' 
 	 from (irb):5 
 
 =end
