@defun network-lookup-address-info name &optional family
This function is used to perform hostname lookups on @var{name}, which
is expected to be an ASCII-only string, otherwise an error is
signaled. Call @code{puny-encode-domain} on @var{name}
first if you wish to lookup internationalized hostnames.
If successful it returns a list of Lisp representations of network
addresses (without port numbers), otherwise it returns @code{nil}.
By default both IPv4 and IPv6 lookups are attempted. The optional
argument @var{family} controls this behavior, specifying the symbol
@code{ipv4} or @code{ipv6} restricts lookups to IPv4 and IPv6
