NAME
       val_get_rrset() - get DNSSEC-validated resource record information

SYNOPSIS
         #include <validator/validator.h>

         struct val_answer_chain {
             val_status_t   val_ans_status;
             char          *val_ans_name;
             int            val_ans_class;
             int            val_ans_type;
             struct rr_rec *val_ans;
             struct val_answer_chain *val_ans_next;
         };

         struct rr_rec {
             size_t         rr_length;
             unsigned char *rr_data;
             struct rr_rec *rr_next;
         };

         int val_get_rrset(val_context_t *ctx,
                           const char *name,
                           int class,
                           int type,
                           unsigned int flags,
                           struct val_answer_chain **answers);

         void val_free_answer_chain(struct val_answer_chain *answers);

DESCRIPTION
       val_get_rrset() performs DNSSEC validation for the given DNS name,
       class and type. It returns the DNSSEC validation status for the
       resource record set, but does not return any authentication chain
       details. If the authentication chain details are required, the
       val_resolve_and_check() function must be used instead.

       val_get_rrset() returns its results in the val_answer_chain structure.
       The memory for this structure is allocated by val_get_rrset; the user
       must release this memory after use using the val_free_answer_chain()
       function.

       The RRsets in the response are returned in the val_answer_chain
       structure.  The val_ans_name member contains the DNS name of the actual
       resource record set returned.  This value may differ from the value
       passed as the name argument to val_get_rrset() if the resource record
       was returned after following a CNAME or DNAME alias. val_ans_name and
       val_ans_type contains the actual class and type for the returned
       resource record. These values may differ from the values passed as
       arguments to val_get_rrset() if the query type or class has the value
       255 (ANY). The resource record set is returned in val_ansas a linked
       list of rr_length and rr_data tuples, for data returned in each
       resource record of the resource record set.  val_ans may be NULL if the
       name is non-existant.

       val_ans_status gives the combined validation status value for the the
       given RRset.  val_istrusted() and val_isvalidated() can be used to
       determine the trustworthiness of data and p_val_status() can be used to
       display the status value to the user in ASCII format (See libval(3)
       more for information).

       The ctx parameter specifies the validation context, which can be set to
       NULL for default values (see libval(3) and dnsval.conf for more details
       on validation contexts and validation policy).

RETURN VALUES
       The val_get_rrset() function returns 0 on success and one of the error
       codes defined in libval(3) on failure.
