void _putshort (Short, MessagePtr) unsigned short Short; u_char *MessagePtr;
The _putshort subroutine puts short byte quantities into the byte stream or arbitrary byte boundaries.
The _putshort subroutine is one of a set of subroutines that form the resolver, a set of functions that resolve domain names. Global information used by the resolver subroutines is kept in the _res data structure. The /usr/include/resolv.h file contains the _res structure definition.
|Short||Represents a 16-bit integer.|
|MessagePtr||Represents a pointer into the byte stream.|
The _putshort subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
All applications containing the _putshort subroutine must be compiled with _BSD set to a specific value. Acceptable values are 43 and 44. In addition, all socket applications must include the BSD libbsd.a library.
|Lists the name server and domain name.|
