ARES_SEARCH(3)				       Library Functions Manual 			       ARES_SEARCH(3)

NAME
ares_search - Initiate a DNS query with domain search
SYNOPSIS
#include <ares.h> typedef void (*ares_callback)(void *arg, int status, int timeouts, unsigned char *abuf, int alen) void ares_search(ares_channel channel, const char *name, int dnsclass, int type, ares_callback callback, void *arg)
DESCRIPTION
The ares_search function initiates a series of single-question DNS queries on the name service channel identi- fied by channel, using the channel's search domains as well as a host alias file given by the HOSTALIAS envi- ronment variable. The parameter name gives the alias name or the base of the query name as a NUL-terminated C string of period-separated labels; if it ends with a period, the channel's search domains will not be used. Periods and backslashes within a label must be escaped with a backslash. The parameters dnsclass and type give the class and type of the query using the values defined in <arpa/nameser.h>. When the query sequence is complete or has failed, the ares library will invoke callback. Completion or failure of the query sequence may happen immediately, or may happen during a later call to ares_process(3) or ares_destroy(3). The callback argument arg is copied from the ares_search argument arg. The callback argument status indicates whether the query sequence ended with a successful query and, if not, how the query sequence failed. It may have any of the following values: ARES_SUCCESS A query completed successfully. ARES_ENODATA No query completed successfully; when the query was tried without a search domain appended, a response was returned with no answers. ARES_EFORMERR A query completed but the server claimed that the query was malformatted. ARES_ESERVFAIL No query completed successfully; when the query was tried without a search domain appended, the server claimed to have experienced a failure. (This code can only occur if the ARES_FLAG_NOCHECKRESP flag was specified at channel initialization time; otherwise, such responses are ignored at the ares_send(3) level.) ARES_ENOTFOUND No query completed successfully; when the query was tried without a search domain appended, the server reported that the queried-for domain name was not found. ARES_ENOTIMP A query completed but the server does not implement the operation requested by the query. (This code can only occur if the ARES_FLAG_NOCHECKRESP flag was specified at channel ini- tialization time; otherwise, such responses are ignored at the ares_send(3) level.) ARES_EREFUSED A query completed but the server refused the query. (This code can only occur returned if the ARES_FLAG_NOCHECKRESP flag was specified at channel initialization time; otherwise, such responses are ignored at the ares_send(3) level.) ARES_TIMEOUT No name servers responded to a query within the timeout period. ARES_ECONNREFUSED No name servers could be contacted. ARES_ENOMEM Memory was exhausted. ARES_ECANCELLED The query was cancelled. ARES_EDESTRUCTION The name service channel channel is being destroyed; the query will not be completed. The callback argument timeouts reports how many times a query timed out during the execution of the given request. If a query completed successfully, the callback argument abuf points to a result buffer of length alen. If the query did not complete successfully, abuf will usually be NULL and alen will usually be 0, but in some cases an unsuccessful query result may be placed in abuf.
