ares_parse_a_reply - Parse a reply to a DNS query of type A into a
int ares_parse_a_reply(const unsigned char *abuf, int alen,
struct hostent **host);
The ares_parse_a_reply function parses the response to a query of type
A into a struct hostent. 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 host. It is the
caller’s responsibility to free the resulting host structure using
ares_free_hostent(3) when it is no longer needed.
ares_parse_a_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.
