NAME¶idn2_lookup_ul - API function
int idn2_lookup_ul(const char * src, char ** lookupname, int flags);
- const char * src
- input zero-terminated locale encoded string.
- char ** lookupname
- newly allocated output variable with name to lookup in DNS.
- int flags
- optional idn2_flags to modify behaviour.
DESCRIPTION¶Perform IDNA2008 lookup string conversion on domain name src , as described in section 5 of RFC 5891. Note that the input is assumed to be encoded in the locale's default coding system, and will be transcoded to UTF-8 and NFC normalized by this function.
Pass IDN2_ALABEL_ROUNDTRIP in flags to convert any input A-labels to U-labels and perform additional testing. Pass IDN2_TRANSITIONAL to enable Unicode TR46 transitional processing, and IDN2_NONTRANSITIONAL to enable Unicode TR46 non-transitional processing. Multiple flags may be specified by binary or:ing them together, for example IDN2_ALABEL_ROUNDTRIP | IDN2_NONTRANSITIONAL. The IDN2_NFC_INPUT in flags is always enabled in this function.
After version 0.11: lookupname may be NULL to test lookup of src without allocating memory.
RETURNS¶On successful conversion IDN2_OK is returned, if conversion from locale to UTF-8 fails then IDN2_ICONV_FAIL is returned, if the output domain or any label would have been too long IDN2_TOO_BIG_DOMAIN or IDN2_TOO_BIG_LABEL is returned, or another error code is returned.
