ares_set_sortlist — Initialize an ares_channel sortlist configuration

Synopsis

#include <ares.h>

int ares_set_sortlist(ares_channel channel, const char *sortstr)

Description

The ares_set_sortlist(3) function initializes an address sortlist configuration for the channel data identified by channel, so that addresses returned by ares_gethostbyname(3) are sorted according to the sortlist. The provided sortstr string that holds a space separated list of IP-address-netmask pairs. The netmask is optional but follows the address after a slash if present. For example, "130.155.160.0/255.255.240.0 130.155.0.0".

This function replaces any potentially previously configured address sortlist with the ones given in the configuration string.

ARES_ENOMEM
