  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Returns a sortable textual representation of an IPaddress.
To text-sort IP addresses, you will have to reformat the triplets. Here it is done by adding leading zeros to them.
This will result in textvalues that will sort correctly, for instance in a portal-sort solution.

Syntax: IPToSortableText ( IPaddress )
Return type: Text
