How to convert IPv4 into IPv6

In my effort to maintain a universal standard in all future IP addressing I need to detect, convert and store any IPv4 as IPv6.  Then my application uses the IPv6 accordingly.  How do I accomplish this?  I need to both detect and convert the IP address as needed.  Obviously some cases would begin with an IPv6 and require no conversion.

We're now in an IPv6 world, gone are the days of memorizing IP addresses;-)

Thanks,

Phil

eg:
in IPv6, 192.0.2.128 can be written as  ::ffff:192.0.2.128
