ldns(3)			   Library Functions Manual		       ldns(3)

NAME
       ldns_wire2rr, ldns_wire2pkt, ldns_wire2rdf, ldns_wire2dname - convert
       from wire format	to host	type

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdint.h>
       #include	<stdbool.h>

       #include	<ldns/ldns.h>

       ldns_status ldns_wire2rr(ldns_rr	**rr, const uint8_t *wire, size_t max,
       size_t *pos, ldns_pkt_section section);

       ldns_status ldns_wire2pkt(ldns_pkt **packet, const uint8_t *data,
       size_t len);

       ldns_status ldns_wire2rdf(ldns_rr *rr, const uint8_t *wire, size_t max,
       size_t *pos);

       ldns_status ldns_wire2dname(ldns_rdf **dname, const uint8_t *wire,
       size_t max, size_t *pos);

DESCRIPTION
       ldns_wire2rr() converts the data	on the uint8_t bytearray (in wire for-
	      mat) to a	DNS resource record.  This function will initialize
	      and allocate memory space	for the	rr structure.  The length of
	      the wiredata of this rr is added to the *pos value.

	      rr: pointer to the structure to hold the rdata value
	      wire: pointer to the buffer with the data
	      max: the length of the data buffer (in bytes)
	      pos: the position	of the rr in the buffer	(ie. the number	of
	      bytes from the start of the buffer)
	      section: the section in the packet the rr	is meant for
	      Returns LDNS_STATUS_OK if	everything succeeds, error otherwise

       ldns_wire2pkt() converts	the data on the	uint8_t	bytearray (in wire
	      format) to a DNS packet.	This function will initialize and al-
	      locate memory space for the packet structure.

	      packet: pointer to the structure to hold the packet
	      data: pointer to the buffer with the data
	      len: the length of the data buffer (in bytes)
	      Returns LDNS_STATUS_OK if	everything succeeds, error otherwise

       ldns_wire2rdf() converts	the data on the	uint8_t	bytearray (in wire
	      format) to DNS rdata fields, and adds them to the	list of	rdfs
	      of the given rr.	This function will initialize and allocate
	      memory space for the dname structures.  The length of the	wire-
	      data of these rdfs is added to the *pos value.

	      All rdfs belonging to the	RR are read; the rr should have	no
	      rdfs yet.	An error is returned if	the format cannot be parsed.

	      rr: pointer to the ldns_rr structure to hold the rdata value
	      wire: pointer to the buffer with the data
	      max: the length of the data buffer (in bytes)
	      pos: the position	of the rdf in the buffer (ie. the number of
	      bytes from the start of the buffer)
	      Returns LDNS_STATUS_OK if	everything succeeds, error otherwise

       ldns_wire2dname() converts the data on the uint8_t bytearray (in	wire
	      format) to a DNS dname rdata field. This function	will initial-
	      ize and allocate memory space for	the dname structure. The
	      length of	the wiredata of	this rdf is added to the *pos value.

	      dname: pointer to	the structure to hold the rdata	value
	      wire: pointer to the buffer with the data
	      max: the length of the data buffer (in bytes)
	      pos: the position	of the rdf in the buffer (ie. the number of
	      bytes from the start of the buffer)
	      Returns LDNS_STATUS_OK if	everything succeeds, error otherwise
