NAME
ldns_rr, ldns_rr_class, ldns_rr_type, ldns_rr_compress, ldns_rr_list SYNOPSIS
#include <stdint.h> #include <stdbool.h> #include <ldns/ldns.h> DESCRIPTION
ldns_rr Resource Record This is the basic DNS element that contains actual data From RFC1035: <pre> 3.2.1. Format All RRs have the same top level format shown below: 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ | | / / / NAME / | | +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ | TYPE | +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ | CLASS | +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ | TTL | | | +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ | RDLENGTH | +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--| / RDATA / / / +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+ where: NAME an owner name, i.e., the name of the node to which this resource record pertains. TYPE two octets containing one of the RR TYPE codes. CLASS two octets containing one of the RR CLASS codes. TTL a 32 bit signed integer that specifies the time interval that the resource record may be cached before the source of the information should again be consulted. Zero values are interpreted to mean that the RR can only be used for the transaction in progress, and should not be cached. For example, SOA records are always distributed with a zero TTL to prohibit caching. Zero values can also be used for extremely volatile data. RDLENGTH an unsigned 16 bit integer that specifies the length in octets of the RDATA field. RDATA a variable length string of octets that describes the resource. The format of this information varies according to the TYPE and CLASS of the resource record. </pre> The actual amount and type of rdata fields depend on the RR type of the RR, and can be found by using ef ldns_rr_descriptor functions. struct ldns_struct_rr { Owner name, uncompressed: ldns_rdf *_owner; Time to live: uint32_t _ttl; Number of data fields: size_t _rd_count; the type of the RR.
