NAME

       ares_timeout - return maximum time to wait

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ares.h>

       struct timeval *ares_timeout(ares_channel channel,
                                    struct timeval *maxtv,
                                    struct timeval *tv)

DESCRIPTION

       The  ares_timeout(3) function determines the maximum time for which the caller should wait
       before invoking ares_process(3) to process timeouts.   The  parameter  maxtv  specifies  a
       existing  maximum timeout, or NULL if the caller does not wish to apply a maximum timeout.
       The parameter tv must point to a writable buffer of type struct timeval It  is  valid  for
       maxtv and tv to have the same value.

       If no queries have timeouts pending sooner than the given maximum timeout, ares_timeout(3)
       returns the value of maxtv; otherwise ares_timeout(3) stores the appropriate timeout value
       into the buffer pointed to by tv and returns the value of tv.
