char *inet_net_pton(int af, const char *src, void *dst, size_t size);
With CIDR, a single IP address can be used to designate many unique IP addresses. A CIDR IP address looks like a normal IP address except that it ends with a slash followed by a number, called the IP prefix. For example:
The IP prefix specifies how many addresses are covered by the CIDR address, with lower numbers covering more addresses. An IP prefix of /12, for example, can be used to address 4,096 former Class C addresses.
Specifies the address family. Currently, only AF_INET is supported.
Points to the presentation-format address. The format of the address is interpreted according to af.
Points to the buffer where the converted address is stored.
Is the size of dst, in bytes.
On success, the
The address family specified in af is not supported by this function.
The buffer specified by dst and size is not large enough to contain the converted address.
The address could not be parsed.

The implementation of this function is taken from the Bind resolver implementation from the Internet Software Consortium.
