Description

These are low-level routines for creating and parsing lightweight resolver address-to-name lookup request and response messages.

There are four main functions for the getnamebyaddr opcode. One render function converts a getnamebyaddr request structure — lwres_gnbarequest_t — to the lightweight resolver's canonical format. It is complemented by a parse function that converts a packet in this canonical format to a getnamebyaddr request structure. Another render function converts the getnamebyaddr response structure — lwres_gnbaresponse_t to the canonical format. This is complemented by a parse function which converts a packet in canonical format to a getnamebyaddr response structure.

These structures are defined in lwres/lwres.h. They are shown below.

#define LWRES_OPCODE_GETNAMEBYADDR      0x00010002U
typedef struct {
        lwres_uint32_t  flags;
        lwres_addr_t    addr;
} lwres_gnbarequest_t;
typedef struct {
        lwres_uint32_t  flags;
        lwres_uint16_t  naliases;
        char           *realname;
        char          **aliases;
        lwres_uint16_t  realnamelen;
        lwres_uint16_t *aliaslen;
        void           *base;
        size_t          baselen;
} lwres_gnbaresponse_t;

lwres_gnbarequest_render() uses resolver context ctx to convert getnamebyaddr request structure req to canonical format. The packet header structure pkt is initialised and transferred to buffer b. The contents of *req are then appended to the buffer in canonical format. lwres_gnbaresponse_render() performs the same task, except it converts a getnamebyaddr response structure lwres_gnbaresponse_t to the lightweight resolver's canonical format.

lwres_gnbarequest_parse() uses context ctx to convert the contents of packet pkt to a lwres_gnbarequest_t structure. Buffer b provides space to be used for storing this structure. When the function succeeds, the resulting lwres_gnbarequest_t is made available through *structp. lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() offers the same semantics as lwres_gnbarequest_parse() except it yields a lwres_gnbaresponse_t structure.

lwres_gnbaresponse_free() and lwres_gnbarequest_free() release the memory in resolver context ctx that was allocated to the lwres_gnbaresponse_t or lwres_gnbarequest_t structures referenced via structp. Any memory associated with ancillary buffers and strings for those structures is also discarded.

Return Values

The getnamebyaddr opcode functions lwres_gnbarequest_render(), lwres_gnbaresponse_render()lwres_gnbarequest_parse() and lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() all return LWRES_R_SUCCESS on success. They return LWRES_R_NOMEMORY if memory allocation fails. LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND is returned if the available space in the buffer b is too small to accommodate the packet header or the lwres_gnbarequest_t and lwres_gnbaresponse_t structures. lwres_gnbarequest_parse() and lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() will return LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND if the buffer is not empty after decoding the received packet. These functions will return LWRES_R_FAILURE if pktflags in the packet header structure lwres_lwpacket_t indicate that the packet is not a response to an earlier query.
