SDL_net and IPv6

I don’t see any documentation on using SDL_net for IPv6.
We’re out of IPv4 addresses (the last few were reserved a cpl months ago), so the need to convert applications and services to use IPv6 is a very important one to address now.------------------------

Agreed. But I expect it requires someone to make do the work for SDL_net
… we need volunteers!

I might work on it, but I’ve never actually worked with IPv6 before.------------------------

In case it might be useful as a reference, here is my public domain UDP networking code which supports IPv4 + IPv6 + its own memory loopback interface on Windows + Linux + OSX:
