NAME

       ares_cancel - Cancel a resolve

       void ares_cancel(ares_channel channel)

DESCRIPTION

       identified by channel.  ares_cancel invokes the callbacks for each pending  query  on  the

       clean up any state which might have been stored in their arguments.

       This function was added in c-ares 1.2.0

       c-ares 1.6.0 and earlier pass a status of ARES_ETIMEOUT instead of ARES_ECANCELLED.
