Cygwin sockets: getaddrinfo undeclared

Im using cygwin to test the code of a server I am writing.
I've included sys/types.h, sys/socket.h, netdb.h, and arpa/inet.h.

And this is the output..

I checked the sys/socket file, and it includes cygwin/socket, which doesnt declare any functions. And getaddrinfo is not declared in sys/socket.

I take it I am missing some sort of package, but which one?

(And by the way, is there any other way to tell g++ where to put the .object files rather than being the object dir when running g++?)

Ok turned out I needed to use the -mno-cygwin option for g++.
But help the on the object file directory would be nice.

Edit: Now I seem to be undefined linking errors:

I have no idea why WSAstartup is showing up (the function and the header are in #ifdef _WIN32 wrappers.

Sorry I couldnt edit the post above, but compiling on centOS, compiles and links fine. But running, the only output I get is:
Segmentation fault

No warnings/ouput popped up whilst g++ was compiling/linking.

Ok delete this thread, I worked it out.

Rather than us deleting the thread why don't you post the answer for others to read?

Ok, I used valgrind to track down the memory errors.

Turns out that gethostbyname("") returned null on centos and I did check it before using it.

I still cant compile this on cygwin.

I wish I could help but I have always felt that cygwin was the work of the devil and avoid it as much as possible, hence I don't know much about it, sorry.

Ok I found out that _WIN32 is defined in cygwin.
And #undef _WIN32 doesnt work >(

Actually I'l use virtualbox.
