Question for PowerBuilder 5.0.04

I need to get the IP Address of a local computer.
I know how to get to the IP Address in the Registry.
The problem is the IP Address is in a hexadecimal form.
How do I get the hexadecimal into a variable?
How do I convert the hexadecimal back to a standard IP Address?

Thanks,
  Frank

The registry is not reliable; among other things, the location of the ip address
depends on your type of network card (at least it does on NT).

(more messing around with API calls unfortunately).
