If you have the name of a host, then you should be able to use gethostbyname() to get the IP from anywhere. If this is being used in a CGI context to track any sort of session data, check Super Search, as there have been comments before about IP's comming out of AOL and firewalls.

[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
[ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
[ambrus]: you can even print them.
[Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be a tablet (with pens), like the Wacom tablets, but you still need good software and need to know how to operate it well in an interactive setting ;)
