NAME

       getdns_address, getdns_address_sync -- get ip address(es) for a name

LIBRARY

       DNS Resolver library (libgetdns, -lgetdns)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <getdns.h>

       getdns_return_t
       getdns_address (getdns_context *context,
          const char *name,
          getdns_dict *extensions,
          void *userarg,
          getdns_transaction_t *transaction_id,
          getdns_callback_t callbackfn)

       getdns_return_t
       getdns_address_sync (getdns_context *context,
          const char *name,
          getdns_dict *extensions,
          getdns_dict **response)

DESCRIPTION

       The  getdns_address(3)  and getdns_address_sync functions provide public entry points into
       the getdns API library to retrieve the address given a host  name.   They  always  returns
       both  IPv4  and  IPv6  addresses.   This  function will use all of the namespaces from the
       context (to better emulate getaddrinfo (3)).

       context A pointer to the previously created DNS context that is to be used with  this  DNS
          request. see getdns_context (3)

       name  the  host  name  to  resolve  to  an  address (note that an IP address is considered
          invalid)

       extensions extensions for this request, NULL if no extensions, see  libgetdns  (3)  for  a
          detailed description of extensions

       userarg returned to the callback function untouched, can be NULL

       transaction_id  populated  by  the  API  and used to identify the callback (for example to
          getdns_cancel_callback), can be NULL, set to 0 if the function fails

       callbackfn non-NULL pointer to a callback function defined by the  application,  typically
          used  to  process  the  response.  Only  the  asynchronous signature accepts a callback
          function, the synchronous signature does not include a callback.  See libgetdns (3) for
          a more detailed discussion of callback functions.

       response  A  getdns_dict  type  is returned in response and always contains at least three
          names: replies_full (a list containing the DNS response as binary  data),  replies_tree
          (a  list  containing  the  parsed  DNS response data) and status (an int).  The storage
          associated with this must be freed by a call to getdns_free_sync_request_memory (3).

RETURN VALUES

       Upon successful  completion  the  functions  return  GETDNS_RETURN_GOOD  ,  otherwise  the
       following error values are returned:

       GETDNS_RETURN_BAD_CONTEXT  if  the  context pointer is invalid or the context has internal
       deficiencies

       GETDNS_RETURN_BAD_DOMAIN_NAME if the domain name passed to the function is invalid

       GETDNS_RETURN_EXTENSION_MISFORMAT if the data  type  specified  in  one  or  more  of  the
       extensions does not match the specifications

       GETDNS_RETURN_GENERIC_ERROR  if some problem was encountered in the function not addressed
       by one of the more specific return codes

       GETDNS_RETURN_INVALID PARAMETER if one or more parameters has an invalid value

       GETDNS_RETURN_MEMORY_ERROR if unable to allocate the memory required

       GETDNS_RETURN_NO_SUCH_EXTENSION if one or more of the strings specified in the  extensions
       are not valid

       The values of status included in the response parameter are:

       GETDNS_RESPSTATUS_GOOD if at least one response was returned

       GETDNS_RESPSTATUS_NO_NAME if queries for the name yielded all negative responses

       GETDNS_RESPSTATUS_ALL_TIMEOUT if all queries for the name timed out

       GETDNS_RESPSTATUS_NO_SECURE_ANSWERS  if  only secure replies accepted (per context) and at
       least one response was received but no DNS responses were secure through DNSSEC

       For a more detailed explanation of the response object see libgetdns (3)
