In Visual Studio, gethostname() is found within the winsock library. To use it in proton.c, we have to include the winsock header and make sure the WSAStartup() (used to initialize the windows socket library) has already been called by pn_driver().
I was wondering if we could isolate the winsock header so that it is only included in driver.c.
We could set up a new function in driver.c called pn_gethostname() whose only function is to call gethostname().
int pn_gethostname(char *name, int namelen)
return gethostname(name, namelen);
