Description

ldns_zone
DNS Zone

A list of RR's with some
extra information which comes from the SOA RR
Note: nothing has been done to make this efficient (yet).
struct ldns_struct_zone
{
the soa defines a zone:
ldns_rr *_soa;
/* basicly a zone is a list of rr's */
ldns_rr_list *_rrs;
/* we could change this to be a b-tree etc etc todo */
};
typedef struct ldns_struct_zone ldns_zone;

ldns_zone_new() create a new ldns_zone structure
Returns a pointer to a ldns_zone structure

ldns_zone_free() Frees the allocated memory for the zone, and the rr_list structure in it
zone: the zone to free

ldns_zone_deep_free() Frees the allocated memory for the zone, the soa rr in it,  and the rr_list structure in it, including the rr's in that. etc.
zone: the zone to free

ldns_zone_new_frm_fp() Create a new zone from a file
z: the new zone
*fp: the filepointer to use
*origin: the zones' origin
ttl: default ttl to use
c: default class to use (IN)

Returns ldns_status mesg with an error or LDNS_STATUS_OK

ldns_zone_new_frm_fp_l() Create a new zone from a file, keep track of the line numbering
z: the new zone
*fp: the filepointer to use
*origin: the zones' origin
ttl: default ttl to use
c: default class to use (IN)
line_nr: used for error msg, to get to the line number

Returns ldns_status mesg with an error or LDNS_STATUS_OK

ldns_zone_print() Print a zone structure * to output. Note the SOA record is included in this output
output: the fd to print to
z: the zone to print

ldns_zone_print_fmt() Print a zone structure * to output. Note the SOA record is included in this output
output: the fd to print to
fmt: format of the textual representation
z: the zone to print
