ARES_PARSE_NS_REPLY(3)	   Library Functions Manual	ARES_PARSE_NS_REPLY(3)

NAME
       ares_parse_ns_reply  -  Parse  a	reply to a DNS query of	type NS	into a
       hostent

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<ares.h>

       int ares_parse_ns_reply(const unsigned char *abuf, int alen,
	    struct hostent **host);

DESCRIPTION
       The ares_parse_ns_reply function	parses the response to a query of type
       NS  into	 a struct hostent.  The	parameters abuf	and alen give the con-
       tents of	the response.  The result is stored in allocated memory	and  a
       pointer	to  it stored into the variable	pointed	to by host.  The name-
       servers are stored into the aliases field of the	host structure.	 It is
       the  caller's responsibility to free the	resulting host structure using
       ares_free_hostent(3) when it is no longer needed.

RETURN VALUES
       ares_parse_ns_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.
