      Description

      Functions to encode/decode IPv6 functions and possibly other related tasks.
      Essentially wrappers around ipv6_ntop() and ipv6_pton() which actually also support IPv4 addresses.

      Encoded storage can be in VARBINARY(16); while a native type is possible, this is not urgent/essential to the issue.
      Likewise, IPv6 client connectivity is not part of this feature request.

      Pieter Ennes (WatchMouse) has written UDFs for this task:

      code at

      I'd recommend putting these in as native functions.
