NAME

       getdns_dict, getdns_dict_create, getdns_dict_create_with_extended_memory_functions,
       getdns_dict_create_with_memory_functions, getdns_dict_destroy -- getdns dict create and
       destroy routines

LIBRARY

       DNS Resolver library (libgetdns, -lgetdns)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <getdns.h>

       getdns_dict *
       getdns_dict_create ()

       getdns_dict *
       getdns_dict_create_with_extended_memory_functions
          (void *userarg,
          void *(*malloc)(void *userarg, size_t sz),
          void *(*realloc)(void *userarg, void *buf, size_t sz),
          void (*free)(void *userarg, void *buf)

getdns_dict_create_with_memory_functions

   (void *(*malloc)(size_t sz),
   void *(*realloc)(void *buf, size_t sz),
   void (*free)(void *buf)

void
getdns_dict_destroy (getdns_dict *this_dict)

DESCRIPTION

       The getdns_dict type is used to manage name/value pairs in which the names are strings and
       the data types of the values are heterogeneous and include
          getdns_bindata
          getdns_dict
          getdns_list
          uint32_t

       The destroy function performs a "deep" destroy, freeing storage for all of the members  of
       the  dictionary  before destroying the dictionary.  There are a number of helper functions
       that provide access to the dictionary object, see their respective man pages.

       userarg pass  this  argument  to  the  user  specified  memory  management  functions  for
       operations on lists created using extended memory functions

       this_dict the dictionary to destroy

RETURN VALUES

       Upon  successful  completion  the  getdns_dict_create  function  returns  a  valid (empty)
       dictionary structure that should be  freed  via  a  call  to  getdns_dict_destroy.   If  a
       parameter in invalid or in the event of some error getdns_dict_create returns NULL.

EXAMPLES

       TBD
