    Resolve the socket protocol/address family issues with IPv4 vs. IPv6

    When listening, the address family cannot be PF_UNSPEC, so default to PF_INET (IPv4), when not specified.
    Not sure why we're setting ai_flags to PF_UNSPEC (copied from syncterm) - that's just 0, but otherwise the PF_ and AI_ flags are not compatible.
    Don't set the ai_flags to anything here since they don't seem to change the behavior.

    Added '-n' option to specify node number (probably no real value/need).

    Safe string formatting.

    Support unlimited number/address aliases in [alias] section of ini file

    Add support for an unlimited number of dial string (e.g. phone number) aliases in the [alias] section of the read .ini file. While the AT&Z, ATDSn support for stored numbers should work fine for the same use cases, it's limited to 20 numbers (that could be easily increased) and may be less obvious to users who it works. The [alias] aliases does not use AT commands to query/store the number aliases, just .ini file edits.

    Re-read .ini file when ATZ command is received. This allows applying dynamic changes to the .ini file without re-running SVDM.

    Address some memory-leaks when reading or making changes to .ini file.

    Fix ATIn command results. The normal result format (from an actual modem) is: <text>
    <blank-line>
    OK (or 0)

    Nice :)

    If I read it correctly, then this enables the "phone book" style dialing that I was hoping to see? ie: atdt12345 (or atds...) could result in a connection to "my.bbs.com:23"? Which makes svdm functionally consistent with tcpser (which is what I was basing my request off of...)

    Very useful :)

    On parallel topic, (I dont think you do much with DOS(?),) but I think if (a some smart cookie) compiled on DOS, it would be an updated version of RLFOSSIL - although I dont know if it is worth the effort..? Memory is a challenge on DOS and RLFOSSIL takes up too much, so not sure if the effort would result in anything more effecient? I saw somebody doing updates to mTCP so was just curious if this was even a possibility...

    Love your work...

    Yeah. It's very similar to the [modem] Save# keys (that are dialed with ATDS#), but more aligned with what you were asking for (and not limited to 20).

    I haven't run bare DOS in a long long time, so yeah, not really interested in that. I don't think much of this project would really be reusable on anything but Windows NT-based OSes. Little pieces, like the telnet stuff, I suppose, sure, but that's not a large portion.

    Love your work...

    Nice.

    Will you release an updated build zip file? I noticed that svdm01.zip is still the only one there.

    I did go looking to see if it was in a build artifact (for sbbs-windows) but it seems only scfg is in that artifact :(
