       ares_parse_aaaa_reply - Parse a reply to a DNS query of type AAAA


       #include <ares.h>

       int ares_parse_aaaa_reply(const unsigned char *abuf, int alen,
            struct hostent **host,
       struct ares_addr6ttl *addrttls, int *naddrttls);


       The  ares_parse_aaaa_reply  function  parses the response to a query of
       type  AAAA  into  a  struct  hostent  and/or   an   array   of   struct
       ares_addr6ttl.   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, if host is nonnull.  It is
       the caller’s responsibility to free the resulting host structure  using
       ares_free_hostent(3) when it is no longer needed.

       If  addrttls  and  naddrttls  are  both  nonnull, then up to *naddrttls
       struct ares_addr6ttl records are stored in  the  array  pointed  to  by
       addrttls,  and  then  *naddrttls  is  set  to  the number of records so
       stored.  Note that the memory for these  records  is  supplied  by  the


       ares_parse_aaaa_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.
