ARES_PARSE_AAAA_REPLY(3)   Library Functions Manual   ARES_PARSE_AAAA_REPLY(3)

NAME
       ares_parse_aaaa_reply - Parse a reply to	a DNS query of type AAAA

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ares.h>

       int ares_parse_aaaa_reply(const unsigned	char *abuf, int	alen,
	    struct hostent **host,
       struct ares_addr6ttl *addrttls, int *naddrttls);

DESCRIPTION
       The  ares_parse_aaaa_reply  function  parses the	response to a query of
       type  AAAA  into	 a  struct  hostent  and/or   an   array   of	struct
       ares_addr6ttl.	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 host, if host is nonnull.	 It is
       the caller's responsibility to free the resulting host structure	 using
       ares_free_hostent(3) when it is no longer needed.

       If  addrttls  and  naddrttls  are  both	nonnull, then up to *naddrttls
       struct ares_addr6ttl records are	stored in the array pointed to by  ad-
       drttls,	and then *naddrttls is set to the number of records so stored.
       Note that the memory for	these records is supplied by the caller.

RETURN VALUES
       ares_parse_aaaa_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.
