       ares_save_options - Save configuration values obtained from initialized ares_channel


       #include <ares.h>

       int ares_save_options(ares_channel channel, struct ares_options *options, int *optmask)


       The  ares_save_options(3)  function saves the channel data identified by channel, into the
       options struct identified by options, and saves the mask of options which are set  to  the
       integer pointer (passed by reference) identified by optmask.

       The   resultant   options   and   optmask   are   then  able  to  be  passed  directly  to
       ares_init_options.  When the options are no longer needed, ares_destroy_options should  be
       called to free any associated memory.


       ares_save_options(3) can return any of the following values:

       ARES_SUCCESS   The channel data was successfully stored

       ARES_ENOMEM    The memory was exhausted

       ARES_ENODATA   The channel data identified by channel were invalid.


       Since  c-ares  1.6.0  the  ares_options  struct has been "locked" meaning that it won't be
       extended to cover new functions. This function will remain functioning, but  it  can  only
       return  config  data that can be represented in this config struct, which may no longer be
       the complete set of config options. ares_dup(3) will not have that restriction.

       The ares_options struct can not handle potential IPv6 name servers the ares_channel  might
       be  configured to use. The ares_save_options(3) function will only return IPv4 servers, if
       any. In  order  to  retrieve  all  name  servers  an  ares_channel  might  be  using,  the
       ares_get_servers(3) function must be used instead.


       ares_destroy_options(3), ares_init_options(3), ares_get_servers(3), ares_dup(3)


       ares_save_options(3) was added in c-ares 1.4.0
