Section 6 says:
1. Call getaddinfo(), which returns a list of IP addresses sorted by the host's address preference policy.
It should say:
1. Call getaddrinfo(), which returns a list of IP addresses sorted by the host's address preference policy.
The r appears to be missing from the getaddrinfo() call. This may vary by language but C, POSIX and Perl seem to expect the r. I would think this is a trivial change, and would fall into the category of "Hold for Document Update".
