       void * lwres_context_sendrecv(lwres_context_t *ctx, void *sendbase, int sendlen,

DESCRIPTION

       lwres_context_create() creates a lwres_context_t structure for use in lightweight resolver
       operations. It holds a socket and other data needed for communicating with a resolver
       daemon. The new lwres_context_t is returned through contextp, a pointer to a
       lwres_context_t pointer. This lwres_context_t pointer must initially be NULL, and is
       modified to point to the newly created lwres_context_t.

       When the lightweight resolver needs to perform dynamic memory allocation, it will call
       malloc_function to allocate memory and free_function to free it. If malloc_function and
       free_function are NULL, memory is allocated using malloc(3). and free(3). It is not
       permitted to have a NULL malloc_function and a non-NULL free_function or vice versa.  arg
       is passed as the first parameter to the memory allocation functions. If malloc_function
       and free_function are NULL, arg is unused and should be passed as NULL.

       Once memory for the structure has been allocated, it is initialized using
       lwres_conf_init(3) and returned via *contextp.

       lwres_context_destroy() destroys a lwres_context_t, closing its socket.  contextp is a
       pointer to a pointer to the context that is to be destroyed. The pointer will be set to
       NULL when the context has been destroyed.

       The context holds a serial number that is used to identify resolver request packets and
       associate responses with the corresponding requests. This serial number is controlled
       using lwres_context_initserial() and lwres_context_nextserial().
       lwres_context_initserial() sets the serial number for context *ctx to serial.
       lwres_context_nextserial() increments the serial number and returns the previous value.

       Memory for a lightweight resolver context is allocated and freed using
       lwres_context_allocmem() and lwres_context_freemem(). These use whatever allocations were
       defined when the context was created with lwres_context_create().
       lwres_context_allocmem() allocates len bytes of memory and if successful returns a pointer
       to the allocated storage.  lwres_context_freemem() frees len bytes of space starting at
       location mem.

       lwres_context_sendrecv() performs I/O for the context ctx. Data are read and written from
       the context's socket. It writes data from sendbase — typically a lightweight resolver
       query packet — and waits for a reply which is copied to the receive buffer at recvbase.
       The number of bytes that were written to this receive buffer is returned in *recvd_len.

RETURN VALUES

       lwres_context_create() returns LWRES_R_NOMEMORY if memory for the struct lwres_context
       could not be allocated, LWRES_R_SUCCESS otherwise.

       Successful calls to the memory allocator lwres_context_allocmem() return a pointer to the
       start of the allocated space. It returns NULL if memory could not be allocated.

       LWRES_R_SUCCESS is returned when lwres_context_sendrecv() completes successfully.
       LWRES_R_IOERROR is returned if an I/O error occurs and LWRES_R_TIMEOUT is returned if
       lwres_context_sendrecv() times out waiting for a response.
