NAME

       lwres_getrrsetbyname, lwres_freerrset - retrieve DNS records

SYNOPSIS

       #include <lwres/netdb.h>

       int lwres_getrrsetbyname(const char *hostname, unsigned int rdclass, unsigned int rdtype,
                                unsigned int flags, struct rrsetinfo **res);

       void lwres_freerrset(struct rrsetinfo *rrset);

       The following structures are used:

           struct  rdatainfo {
                   unsigned int            rdi_length;     /* length of data */
                   unsigned char           *rdi_data;      /* record data */
           };

           struct  rrsetinfo {
                   unsigned int            rri_flags;      /* RRSET_VALIDATED... */
                   unsigned int            rri_rdclass;    /* class number */
                   unsigned int            rri_rdtype;     /* RR type number */
                   unsigned int            rri_ttl;        /* time to live */
                   unsigned int            rri_nrdatas;    /* size of rdatas array */
                   unsigned int            rri_nsigs;      /* size of sigs array */
                   char                    *rri_name;      /* canonical name */
                   struct rdatainfo        *rri_rdatas;    /* individual records */
                   struct rdatainfo        *rri_sigs;      /* individual signatures */
           };

DESCRIPTION

       lwres_getrrsetbyname() gets a set of resource records associated with a hostname, class,
       and type.  hostname is a pointer a to null-terminated string. The flags field is currently
       unused and must be zero.

       After a successful call to lwres_getrrsetbyname(), *res is a pointer to an rrsetinfo
       structure, containing a list of one or more rdatainfo structures containing resource
       records and potentially another list of rdatainfo structures containing SIG resource
       records associated with those records. The members rri_rdclass and rri_rdtype are copied
       from the parameters.  rri_ttl and rri_name are properties of the obtained rrset. The
       resource records contained in rri_rdatas and rri_sigs are in uncompressed DNS wire format.
       Properties of the rdataset are represented in the rri_flags bitfield. If the
       RRSET_VALIDATED bit is set, the data has been DNSSEC validated and the signatures
       verified.

       All of the information returned by lwres_getrrsetbyname() is dynamically allocated: the
       rrsetinfo and rdatainfo structures, and the canonical host name strings pointed to by the
       rrsetinfostructure. Memory allocated for the dynamically allocated structures created by a
       successful call to lwres_getrrsetbyname() is released by lwres_freerrset().  rrset is a
       pointer to a struct rrset created by a call to lwres_getrrsetbyname().

RETURN VALUES

       lwres_getrrsetbyname() returns zero on success, and one of the following error codes if an
       error occurred:

       ERRSET_NONAME
           the name does not exist

       ERRSET_NODATA
           the name exists, but does not have data of the desired type

       ERRSET_NOMEMORY
           memory could not be allocated

       ERRSET_INVAL
           a parameter is invalid

       ERRSET_FAIL
           other failure
