       int ax25_aton(const char *cp, struct full_sockaddr_ax25 *fsap);

       int ax25_aton_arglist(const char **cp, struct full_sockaddr_ax25 *fsap);

       int ax25_aton_entry(const char *cp, char *axp);

       ax25_aton() takes the ASCII string cp that is in  the  format  callsign
       [[V|VIA] callsign ...]  and stores it in fsap in network format.

       ax25_aton_entry() takes the ASCII string of a callsign cp and stores it
       in network format in axp.

       ax25_aton_arglist() takes a NULL terminated array  of  strings  cp  and
       stores it fsap in network format.

       ax25_ntoa()  takes  a  network format address axp and returns the ASCII
       representation. The  string  is  returned  in  a  statically  allocated
       buffer, which subsequent calls will overwrite.

       The  ax25_cmp()  function compares the two ax25 addresses, ax1 and ax2,
       that are in network format and determines wether  they  are  identical,
       differ only by their SSIDs or are different.

       The  ax25_validate function checks to see if the address axp in network
       format is a correctly formatted address.


       The ax25_aton() and ax25_aton_arglist() functions return -1 if an error
       occurs otherwise the length of the returned structure.

       The  ax25_aton_entry() function returns -1 if an error occurs otherwise

       The ax25_cmp() function returns 0 if the two addresses are identical, 1
       if they are different or 2 is only the SSIDs are different.

       The  ax25_validate  function  returns  TRUE if the callsign is valid or
       FALSE if it is not.
