ARES_PARSE_SOA_REPLY(3)	   Library Functions Manual    ARES_PARSE_SOA_REPLY(3)

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;
	   };

       ARES_ENODATA   The response did not contain an answer to	the query.
