ares_destroy - Destroy a resolver channel
void ares_destroy(ares_channel channel)
function destroys the name service channel
identified by channel
, freeing all memory and closing all sockets used
by the channel.
ares_destroy(3) invokes the callbacks for each pending query on the
channel, passing a status of ARES_EDESTRUCTION. These calls give the
callbacks a chance to clean up any state which might have been stored in their
arguments. A callback must not add new requests to a channel being destroyed.
