    DESCRIPTION

           These functions make queries to and interpret the responses from Inter-
           net domain name servers.
    
           The   res_init()   function   reads   the   configuration   files  (see
           resolv.conf(5)) to get the default domain name, search order  and  name
           server  address(es).   If  no server is given, the local host is tried.
           If no domain is given, that associated with the local host is used.  It
           can   be   overridden   with   the  environment  variable  LOCALDOMAIN.
           res_init() is normally executed by the first call to one of  the  other
           functions.
    
           The  res_query()  function queries the name server for the fully quali-
           fied domain name name of specified type and class.  The reply  is  left
           in the buffer answer of length anslen supplied by the caller.
    
           The res_search() function makes a query and waits for the response like
           The res_send() function sends a preformatted  query  given  in  msg  of
           length  msglen  and  returns  the  answer  in answer which is of length
           anslen.  It will call res_init(), if it has not already been called.
    
           The dn_comp() function compresses the domain name exp_dn and stores  it
           in  the buffer comp_dn of length length.  The compression uses an array
           of pointers dnptrs to previously compressed names in the  current  mes-
           sage.  The first pointer points to the beginning of the message and the
           list ends with NULL.  The limit of the array is specified by lastdnptr.
           If  dnptr  is  NULL,  domain names are not compressed.  If lastdnptr is
           NULL, the list of labels is not updated.
    
           The dn_expand() function expands the compressed domain name comp_dn  to
           a  full  domain  name,  which  is  placed  in the buffer exp_dn of size
           length.  The compressed name is contained in a query or reply  message,
           and msg points to the beginning of the message.
    
           The  resolver  routines  use global configuration and state information
           contained in the structure _res, which is defined in  <resolv.h>.   The
           only  field  that  is normally manipulated by the user is _res.options.
           This field can contain the bitwise "OR" of the following options:
    
           RES_INIT
                  True if res_init() has been called.
    
           RES_DEBUG
                  Print debugging messages.  This  option  is  available  only  if
                  glibc  was  built  with  debugging  enabled,  which  is  not the
                  default.
    
           RES_AAONLY
                  Accept authoritative answers only.  res_send()  continues  until
                  it finds an authoritative answer or returns an error.  [Not cur-
                  rently implemented].
    
           RES_USEVC
                  Use TCP connections for queries rather than UDP datagrams.
    
           RES_PRIMARY
                  Query primary domain name server only.
    
           RES_IGNTC
                  Ignore truncation errors.  Don't retry with TCP.  [Not currently
                  implemented].
    
           RES_RECURSE
                  Set  the recursion desired bit in queries.  Recursion is carried
                  out by the domain name server, not by res_send().   [Enabled  by
                  default].
    
           RES_DEFNAMES
                  If set, res_search() will append the default domain name to sin-
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           The res_init() function returns 0 on success, or -1 if an error occurs.
    
           The res_query(),  res_search(),  res_querydomain(),  res_mkquery()  and
           res_send()  functions  return  the  length of the response, or -1 if an
           error occurs.
    
           The dn_comp() and dn_expand() functions return the length of  the  com-
           pressed name, or -1 if an error occurs.
