NAME

ldns_rr, ldns_rr_class, ldns_rr_type, ldns_rr_compress, ldns_rr_list

SYNOPSIS

#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdbool.h>

#include <ldns/ldns.h>

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

               5

 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

                                               |

                                               /

                      NAME                     /

                                               |

 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

                      TYPE                     |

 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

                     CLASS                     |

 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

                      TTL                      |

                                               |

 +--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+

                   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.
