SYNOPSIS


#include <ares.h> 

int ares_parse_srv_reply(const unsigned char* abuf, int alen, struct ares_srv_reply** srv_out);

DESCRIPTION

The ares_parse_srv_reply function parses the response to a query of type SRV into a linked list of struct ares_srv_reply The parameters abuf and alen give the contents of the response.

It is the caller’s responsibility to free the resulting srv_out structure when it is no longer needed using the function ares_free_data

struct ares_srv_reply {
    struct ares_srv_reply  *next;
    unsigned short weight;
    unsigned short priority;
    unsigned short port;
    char *host;
};

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.
