ldns(3) Library Functions Manual ldns(3)


ldns_rdf_size, ldns_rdf_get_type, ldns_rdf_data, ldns_rdf_compare - get rdf attributes


#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdbool.h>

#include <ldns/ldns.h>

size_t ldns_rdf_size(const ldns_rdf *rd);

ldns_rdf_type ldns_rdf_get_type(const ldns_rdf *rd);

uint8_t* ldns_rdf_data(const ldns_rdf *rd);

int ldns_rdf_compare(const ldns_rdf *rd1, const ldns_rdf *rd2);


ldns_rdf_size() returns the size of the rdf.
*rd: the rdf to read from
Returns uint16_t with the size

ldns_rdf_get_type() returns the type of the rdf. We need to insert _get_ here to prevent conflict the the rdf_type TYPE.
*rd: the rdf to read from
Returns ldns_rdf_type with the type

ldns_rdf_data() returns the data of the rdf.
*rd: the rdf to read from

Returns uint8_t* pointer to the rdf's data

ldns_rdf_compare() compares two rdf's on their wire formats. (To order dnames according to rfc4034, use ldns_dname_compare)
rd1: the first one
rd2: the second one
Returns 0 if equal
Returns -1 if rd1 comes before rd2
Returns +1 if rd2 comes before rd1
