Availability

This option requires that libcurl was built with a resolver backend that supports this operation. The c-ares backend is the only such one.

Added in 7.24.0

Return Value

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN if support was disabled at compile-time, CURLE_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGUMENT when given an invalid server list, or CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
