NAME

       getdns_service, getdns_service_sync -- getdns lookup of a service

LIBRARY

       DNS Resolver library (libgetdns, -lgetdns)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <getdns.h>

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

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

DESCRIPTION

       The  getdns_service (3) and getdns_service_sync functions provide public entry points into
       the getdns API library to retrieve the SRV information given a name.

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

       name the service name to resolve

       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)
