.TH ARES_DUP 3 "2 Dec 2008"
ares_dup \- Duplicate a resolver channel
.B #include <ares.h>
.B int ares_dup(ares_channel *\fIchannel\fP, ares_channel \fIsource\fP)
The \fBares_dup(3)\fP function duplicates an existing communications channel
for name service lookups. If it returns successfully, \fBares_dup(3)\fP will
set the variable pointed to by \fIchannel\fP to a handle used to identify the
name service channel. The caller should invoke \fIares_destroy(3)\fP on the
handle when the channel is no longer needed.
The \fBares_dup_options\fP function also initializes a name service channel,
with additional options set exactly as the \fIsource\fP channel has them
.BR ares_destroy(3),
.BR ares_init(3)
ares_dup(3) was added in c-ares 1.6.0
