DESCRIPTION
       The BIO_ADDRINFO	type is	a wrapper for address information types
       provided	on your	platform.

       BIO_ADDRINFO normally forms a chain of several that can be picked at
       one by one.

       BIO_lookup_ex() looks up	a specified host and service, and uses
       lookup_type to determine	what the default address should	be if host is
       NULL. family, socktype and protocol are used to determine what protocol
       family, socket type and protocol	should be used for the lookup.	family
       can be any of AF_INET, AF_INET6,	AF_UNIX	and AF_UNSPEC. socktype	can be
       SOCK_STREAM, SOCK_DGRAM or 0. Specifying	0 indicates that any type can
       be used.	protocol specifies a protocol such as IPPROTO_TCP, IPPROTO_UDP
       or IPPORTO_SCTP.	If set to 0 than any protocol can be used. res points
       at a pointer to hold the	start of a BIO_ADDRINFO	chain.

       For the family AF_UNIX, BIO_lookup_ex() will ignore the service
       parameter and expects the node parameter	to hold	the path to the	socket
       file.

       BIO_lookup() does the same as BIO_lookup_ex() but does not provide the
       ability to select based on the protocol (any protocol may be returned).

       BIO_ADDRINFO_family() returns the family	of the given BIO_ADDRINFO.
       The result will be one of the constants AF_INET,	AF_INET6 and AF_UNIX.

       BIO_ADDRINFO_socktype() returns the socket type of the given
       BIO_ADDRINFO.  The result will be one of	the constants SOCK_STREAM and
       SOCK_DGRAM.

       BIO_ADDRINFO_protocol() returns the protocol id of the given
       BIO_ADDRINFO.  The result will be one of	the constants IPPROTO_TCP and
       IPPROTO_UDP.

       BIO_ADDRINFO_address() returns the underlying BIO_ADDR of the given
       BIO_ADDRINFO.

       BIO_ADDRINFO_next() returns the next BIO_ADDRINFO in the	chain from the
       given one.

       BIO_ADDRINFO_free() frees the chain of BIO_ADDRINFO starting with the
       given one.

RETURN VALUES
       BIO_lookup_ex() and BIO_lookup()	return 1 on success and	0 when an
       error occurred, and will	leave an error indication on the OpenSSL error
       stack in	that case.

       All other functions described here return 0 or NULL when	the
       information they	should return isn't available.

NOTES
       The BIO_lookup_ex() implementation uses the platform provided
       getaddrinfo() function. On Linux	it is known that specifying 0 for the
       protocol	will not return	any SCTP based addresses when calling
       getaddrinfo(). Therefore	if an SCTP address is required then the
       protocol	parameter to BIO_lookup_ex() should be explicitly set to
       IPPROTO_SCTP. The same may be true on other platforms.

HISTORY
       The BIO_lookup_ex() function was	added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
