DESCRIPTION

       ldns_rr
              Resource Record

              This is the basic DNS element that contains actual data

              From RFC1035:
              <pre>
              3.2.1. Format

              All RRs have the same top level format shown below:

                                                  1  1  1  1  1  1

                  |                   RDLENGTH                    |
                  +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--|
                  /                     RDATA                     /
                  /                                               /
                  +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

              where:

              NAME            an owner name, i.e., the name of the node to which this
                              resource record pertains.

              TYPE            two octets containing one of the RR TYPE codes.

              CLASS           two octets containing one of the RR CLASS codes.

              TTL             a 32 bit signed integer that specifies the time interval
                              that the resource record may be cached before the source
                              of the information should again be consulted.  Zero
                              values are interpreted to mean that the RR can only be
                              used for the transaction in progress, and should not be
                              cached.  For example, SOA records are always distributed
                              with a zero TTL to prohibit caching.  Zero values can
                              also be used for extremely volatile data.

              RDLENGTH        an unsigned 16 bit integer that specifies the length in
                              octets of the RDATA field.

              RDATA           a variable length string of octets that describes the
                              resource.  The format of this information varies
                              according to the TYPE and CLASS of the resource record.
              </pre>

              The actual amount and type of rdata fields depend on the RR type of the
              RR, and can be found by using \ref ldns_rr_descriptor functions.
