I'm currently working on a project where I need to convert an IP address from its packed in_addr representation to the standard human-readable format (IPv4 or IPv6). After doing some research, I came across the `inet_ntop()` function in PHP which seems to do exactly what I need.
However, I'm not quite sure how to use this function properly. I've looked at the PHP manual, but the explanations provided there are a bit technical for me to understand completely. I was hoping someone could help me out by providing a simple example that demonstrates the usage of the `inet_ntop()` function.
If you could also explain the parameters required by the function and what the function returns, it would really help me grasp the concept better. Additionally, if you have any tips or best practices regarding the usage of this function, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
