Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
Converts a IP Long number to a real usable IP address.
This is used by a lot of php/mysql programmers as a IP Long number uses less space in the database, being a number (int) instead of a text (varchar).
Indexing is faster.
This function converts the number (int) back to a real IP addres, that can be used on the web or servers.

Thanks, this may be just what I need.
Is there one to do the opposite, just in case I need to go back from an IP to an integer?
