ARES_FREE_HOSTENT(3)	   Library Functions Manual	  ARES_FREE_HOSTENT(3)

NAME
       ares_free_hostent - Free	host structure allocated by ares functions

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ares.h>

       void ares_free_hostent(struct hostent *host)

DESCRIPTION
       The  ares_free_hostent function frees a struct hostent allocated	by one
       of the functions	 ares_parse_a_reply(3),	 ares_parse_aaaa_reply(3),  or
       ares_parse_ptr_reply(3).

NOTES
       It  is  not  necessary  (and is not correct) to free the	host structure
       passed  to  the	callback  functions   for   ares_gethostbyname(3)   or
       ares_gethostbyaddr(3).  c-ares will automatically free such host	struc-
       tures when the callback returns.

SEE ALSO
       ares_parse_a_reply(3),	ares_parse_aaaa_reply(3),   ares_parse_ptr_re-
       ply(3), ares_parse_ns_reply(3)
