idn_checkname(3)	   Library Functions Manual	      idn_checkname(3)

NAME
       idn_checkname - validate	an internationalized domain name

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<idn/api.h>

       idn_result_t
       idn_checkname(idn_action_t actions, const char *from);

DESCRIPTION
       The function idn_checkname() internally creates a copy of name, encodes
       it with idn_encodename()	and returns its	error code.

       In addition with	action macros for idn_encodename() (e.g.  IDN_UNICODE-
       CONV), the following macros are available for idn_checkname().

	   IDN_CHECK_REGIST
		  Encode  a domain name	with IDNA2008 registration protocol to
		  validate a domain name.  Currently, its value	is the same as
		  IDN_ENCODE_REGIST.

	   IDN_CHECK_LOOKUP
		  Encode  a domain name	with IDNA2008 lookup protocol to vali-
		  date a domain	name.  Currently, its value  is	 the  same  as
		  IDN_ENCODE_LOOKUP.

EXAMPLES
       The program below shows an example of idn_checkname().

	   idn_result_t	r;
	   ...
	   r = idn_checkname(IDN_CHECK_REGIST, name);
	   if (r == idn_success)
	       fprintf(stderr, "'%s' is	valid\n", name);
	   else	{
	       fprintf(stderr, "'%s' is	not valid: %s\n",
		    name, idn_result_tostring(r));
	   }
	   ...
