       lwres_getrrsetbyname, lwres_freerrset - retrieve DNS records

       #include <lwres/netdb.h>

       int lwres_getrrsetbyname(const char *hostname, unsigned int rdclass,
				unsigned int rdtype, unsigned int flags,
				struct rrsetinfo **res);

       void lwres_freerrset(struct rrsetinfo *rrset);

       The following structures are used:

	   struct  rdatainfo {
		   unsigned int		   rdi_length;	   /* length of data */
		   unsigned char	   *rdi_data;	   /* record data */

	   struct  rrsetinfo {
		   unsigned int		   rri_flags;	   /* RRSET_VALIDATED... */
		   unsigned int		   rri_rdclass;	   /* class number */
		   unsigned int		   rri_rdtype;	   /* RR type number */
		   unsigned int		   rri_ttl;	   /* time to live */
		   unsigned int		   rri_nrdatas;	   /* size of rdatas array */
		   unsigned int		   rri_nsigs;	   /* size of sigs array */
		   char			   *rri_name;	   /* canonical name */
		   struct rdatainfo	   *rri_rdatas;	   /* individual records */
		   struct rdatainfo	   *rri_sigs;	   /* individual signatures */

       lwres_getrrsetbyname() gets a set of resource records associated with a
       hostname, class, and type.  hostname is a pointer a to null-terminated
       string. The flags field is currently unused and must be zero.

       After a successful call to lwres_getrrsetbyname(), *res is a pointer to
       an rrsetinfo structure, containing a list of one or more rdatainfo
       structures containing resource records and potentially another list of
       rdatainfo structures containing SIG resource records associated with
       those records. The members rri_rdclass and rri_rdtype are copied from
       the parameters.	rri_ttl and rri_name are properties of the obtained
       rrset. The resource records contained in rri_rdatas and rri_sigs are in
       uncompressed DNS wire format. Properties of the rdataset are
       represented in the rri_flags bitfield. If the RRSET_VALIDATED bit is
       set, the data has been DNSSEC validated and the signatures verified.

       All of the information returned by lwres_getrrsetbyname() is
       dynamically allocated: the rrsetinfo and rdatainfo structures, and the
       canonical host name strings pointed to by the rrsetinfostructure.
       Memory allocated for the dynamically allocated structures created by a
       successful call to lwres_getrrsetbyname() is released by
       lwres_freerrset().  rrset is a pointer to a struct rrset created by a
       call to lwres_getrrsetbyname().

       lwres_getrrsetbyname() returns zero on success, and one of the
       following error codes if an error occurred:

	   the name does not exist

	   the name exists, but does not have data of the desired type

	   memory could not be allocated

	   a parameter is invalid

	   other failure
