NAME
ares_parse_soa_reply - Parse a reply to a DNS query of type SOA SYNOPSIS
#include <ares.h> int ares_parse_soa_reply(const unsigned char* abuf, int alen, struct ares_soa_reply** soa_out); DESCRIPTION
The ares_parse_soa_reply function parses the response to a query of type SOA into a struct ares_soa_reply. The parameters abuf and alen give the contents of the response. The result is stored in allocated memory and a pointer to it stored into the variable pointed to by soa_out. It is the caller's responsibility to free the resulting soa_out structure when it is no longer needed using the function ares_free_data The structure ares_soa_reply contains the following fields: struct ares_soa_reply { char *nsname; char *hostmaster; unsigned int serial; unsigned int refresh; unsigned int retry; unsigned int expire; unsigned int minttl; }; RETURN VALUES
ares_parse_soa_reply can return any of the following values: ARES_SUCCESS The response was successfully parsed. ARES_EBADRESP The response was malformatted. ARES_ENODATA The response did not contain an answer to the query. ARES_ENOMEM Memory was exhausted. AVAILABILITY
This function was first introduced in c-ares version 1.9.0. SEE ALSO
