NAME

       ares_destroy - Destroy a resolver channel

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ares.h>

       void ares_destroy(ares_channel channel)

DESCRIPTION

       The  ares_destroy(3)  function  destroys  the  name service channel identified by channel,
       freeing all memory and closing all sockets used by the channel.

       ares_destroy(3) invokes the callbacks for each pending query on  the  channel,  passing  a
       status of ARES_EDESTRUCTION. These calls give the callbacks a chance to clean up any state
       which might have been stored in their arguments. A callback must not add new requests to a
       channel being destroyed.
