allocates and initializes a ldns_pkt structure. .br Returns pointer to the new packet

frees the packet structure and all data that it contains. .br packet: The packet structure to free .br Returns void

Prints the data in the DNS packet to the given file stream (in presentation format)

.br output: the file stream to print to .br pkt: the packet to print .br Returns void

creates a packet with a query in it for the given name, type and class. .br rr_name: the name to query for .br rr_type: the type to query for .br rr_class: the class to query for .br flags: packet flags .br Returns ldns_pkt* a pointer to the new pkt

creates a query packet for the given name, type, class. .br p: the packet to be returned .br rr_name: the name to query for (as string) .br rr_type: the type to query for .br rr_class: the class to query for .br flags: packet flags .br Returns LDNS_STATUS_OK or a ldns_status mesg with the error

looks inside the packet to determine what kind of packet it is, AUTH, NXDOMAIN, REFERRAL, etc. .br p: the packet to examine .br Returns the type of packet
