Hi! Nice to hear from you :-) I already tried to post the following line as a 
possible solution to a possible problem under certain (unknown to me) 
circumstances on the online manual page for GETHOSTBYADDR (but my note 10755 
was rejected):

$TheName=trim(gethostbyaddr($row->THEHOST."               "));

The original line:


called using an unresolvable IP like xx.xx.x.xxx returned something like
xx.xx.x.xxxMKJA, where MKJA represents some garbage I discovered was used to 
fill up to 15 chars (the maximum length for an IP).

I guess an IP like should do the job :-)

> gethostbyaddr returns the original IP when an error occurs, but this string is
