ares_fds \- Get file descriptors to select on for name service
.B #include <ares.h>
.B int ares_fds(ares_channel \fIchannel\fP, fd_set *\fIread_fds\fP,
.B fd_set *\fIwrite_fds\fP)
.B ares_fds
function retrieves the set of file descriptors which the calling
application should select on for reading and writing for the
processing of name service queries pending on the name service channel
identified by
.IR channel .
File descriptors will be set in the file descriptor sets pointed to by
.I read_fds
.I write_fds
as appropriate. File descriptors already set in
.I read_fds
.I write_fds
will remain set; initialization of the file descriptor sets
is the responsibility of the caller.
.B ares_fds
returns one greater than the number of the highest socket set in either
.I read_fds
.IR write_fds .
If no queries are active,
.B ares_fds
will return 0.
