.TH ARES_VERSION 3 "29 January 2004"
.SH NAME
ares_version \- Get the version number of the library
.SH SYNOPSIS
.nf
.B #include <ares.h>
.PP
.B const char *ares_version(int *\fIversion\fP)
.fi
.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.B ares_version
function gets the library version as a string and optionally as an integer
stored in the
.IR version ,
argument. If you pass a NULL, no integer is attempted to be returned.
The integer is built up as 24bit number, with 8 separate bits used for major
number, minor number and patch number. This makes a version string such as
1.2.3 will be returned as the hexadecimal number 0x010203 (decimal 66051).
.SH NOTES
This function is not compatible with ares.
