I wasn't actually referring to the formats the user types in, those will
obviously need to be checked too. I was referring to verifying that what
they entered is in fact a valid address. Take the example Wikipedia uses:
2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:1428:57ab can be expressed as any of the
So if the user actually puts in 2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:1428:57ab
and we use this to see if it's a valid address:
return( $ip == inet_pton(inet_ntop($ip))) ? true : false;
The result breaks. The code returns 2001:db8::1428:57ab to compare with
the original $ip variable, which no longer matches what the user typed
in. So I'd need some way to take the long format and break it down
according to IPv6 formatting rules so that the comparison is useful to
the code, and we can then make sure someone hasn't tried to make an IPv6
entry equivalent to 218.104.22.168 where the 299 is obviously not valid.
