Ticket #1979 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Add support to parse address string with scope ID

For string addresses with scope IDs, which can be useful to specify interface names, such as "fe80::1234%intf1", inet_pton() will simply ignore the scope ID. The solution would be to use getaddrinfo(), which can correctly parse the scope ID.
