       lwres_string_parse, lwres_addr_parse, lwres_getaddrsbyname,
       lwres_getnamebyaddr - lightweight resolver utility functions

       #include <lwres/lwres.h>

       lwres_result_t lwres_string_parse(lwres_buffer_t *b, char **c,
					 lwres_uint16_t *len);

       lwres_result_t lwres_addr_parse(lwres_buffer_t *b, lwres_addr_t *addr);

       lwres_result_t lwres_getaddrsbyname(lwres_context_t *ctx,
					   const char *name,
					   lwres_uint32_t addrtypes,
					   lwres_gabnresponse_t **structp);

       lwres_result_t lwres_getnamebyaddr(lwres_context_t *ctx,
					  lwres_uint32_t addrtype,
					  lwres_uint16_t addrlen,
					  const unsigned char *addr,
					  lwres_gnbaresponse_t **structp);

       lwres_string_parse() retrieves a DNS-encoded string starting the
       current pointer of lightweight resolver buffer b: i.e.  b->current.
       When the function returns, the address of the first byte of the encoded
       string is returned via *c and the length of that string is given by
       *len. The buffer's current pointer is advanced to point at the
       character following the string length, the encoded string, and the
       trailing NULL character.

       lwres_addr_parse() extracts an address from the buffer b. The buffer's
       current pointer b->current is presumed to point at an encoded address:
       the address preceded by a 32-bit protocol family identifier and a
       16-bit length field. The encoded address is copied to addr->address and
       addr->length indicates the size in bytes of the address that was
       copied.	b->current is advanced to point at the next byte of available
       data in the buffer following the encoded address.

       lwres_getaddrsbyname() and lwres_getnamebyaddr() use the
       lwres_gnbaresponse_t structure defined below:

	   typedef struct {
		   lwres_uint32_t	   flags;
		   lwres_uint16_t	   naliases;
		   lwres_uint16_t	   naddrs;
		   char			  *realname;
		   char			 **aliases;
		   lwres_uint16_t	   realnamelen;
		   lwres_uint16_t	  *aliaslen;
		   lwres_addrlist_t	   addrs;
		   void			  *base;
		   size_t		   baselen;
	   } lwres_gabnresponse_t;

       The contents of this structure are not manipulated directly but they
       are controlled through the lwres_gabn(3) functions.

       The lightweight resolver uses lwres_getaddrsbyname() to perform foward
       lookups. Hostname name is looked up using the resolver context ctx for
       memory allocation.  addrtypes is a bitmask indicating which type of
       addresses are to be looked up. Current values for this bitmask are
       LWRES_ADDRTYPE_V4 for IPv4 addresses and LWRES_ADDRTYPE_V6 for IPv6
       addresses. Results of the lookup are returned in *structp.

       lwres_getnamebyaddr() performs reverse lookups. Resolver context ctx is
       used for memory allocation. The address type is indicated by addrtype:
       LWRES_ADDRTYPE_V4 or LWRES_ADDRTYPE_V6. The address to be looked up is
       given by addr and its length is addrlen bytes. The result of the
       function call is made available through *structp.

       Successful calls to lwres_string_parse() and lwres_addr_parse() return
       LWRES_R_SUCCESS.	 Both functions return LWRES_R_FAILURE if the buffer
       is corrupt or LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND if the buffer has less space than
       expected for the components of the encoded string or address.

       lwres_getaddrsbyname() returns LWRES_R_SUCCESS on success and it
       returns LWRES_R_NOTFOUND if the hostname name could not be found.

       LWRES_R_SUCCESS is returned by a successful call to

       Both lwres_getaddrsbyname() and lwres_getnamebyaddr() return
       LWRES_R_NOMEMORY when memory allocation requests fail and
       LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND if the buffers used for sending queries and
       receiving replies are too small.
