       ares_version - Get the version number of the library


       #include <ares.h>

       const char *ares_version(int *version)


       The  ares_version  function  gets  the  library version as a string and
       optionally as an integer stored in the version, argument. If you pass a
       NULL, no integer is attempted to be returned.

       The  integer is built up as 24bit number, with 8 separate bits used for
       major number, minor number and  patch  number.  This  makes  a  version
       string  such  as  1.2.3  will  be  returned  as  the hexadecimal number
       0x010203 (decimal 66051).


       This function is not compatible with ares.
