2020-08-24report res_query failures, including nxdomain/nodata, via h_errnoRich Felker-1/+15
while it's not clearly documented anywhere, this is the historical behavior which some applications expect. applications which need to see the response packet in these cases, for example to distinguish between nonexistence in a secure vs insecure zone, must already use res_mkquery with res_send in order to be portable, since most if not all other implementations of res_query don't provide it.
2018-09-12reduce spurious inclusion of libc.hRich Felker-1/+0
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented) cancellation points had to include it. remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases. in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h. declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are needed to use them correctly anyway.

2018-09-12overhaul internally-public declarations using wrapper headersRich Felker-3/+0
commits leading up to this one have moved the vast majority of libc-internal interface declarations to appropriate internal headers, allowing them to be type-checked and setting the stage to limit their visibility. the ones that have not yet been moved are mostly namespace-protected aliases for standard/public interfaces, which exist to facilitate implementing plain C functions in terms of POSIX functionality, or C or POSIX functionality in terms of extensions that are not standardized. some don't quite fit this description, but are "internally public" interfacs between subsystems of libc. rather than create a number of newly-named headers to declare these functions, and having to add explicit include directives for them to every source file where they're needed, I have introduced a method of wrapping the corresponding public headers. parallel to the public headers in $(srcdir)/include, we now have wrappers in $(srcdir)/src/include that come earlier in the include path order. they include the public header they're wrapping, then add declarations for namespace-protected versions of the same interfaces and any "internally public" interfaces for the subsystem they correspond to. along these lines, the wrapper for features.h is now responsible for the definition of the hidden, weak, and weak_alias macros. this means source files will no longer need to include any special headers to access these features. over time, it is my expectation that the scope of what is "internally public" will expand, reducing the number of source files which need to include *_impl.h and related headers down to those which are actually implementing the corresponding subsystems, not just using them.
2014-06-02implement new dns backend, res_send and other legacy resolver functionsRich Felker-18/+10
this is the second phase of the "resolver overhaul" project. the key additions in this commit are the __res_msend and __res_mkquery functions, which have been factored so as to provide a backend for both the legacy res_* functions and the standard getaddrinfo and getnameinfo functions. the latter however are still using the old backend code; there is code duplication which still needs to be removed, and this will be the next phase of the resolver overhaul. __res_msend is derived from the old __dns_doqueries function, but generalized to send arbitrary caller-provided packets in parallel rather than producing the parallel queries itself. this allows it to be used (completely trivially) as a backend for res_send. the factored-out query generation code, with slightly more generality, is now part of __res_mkquery.

2012-05-12use __h_errno_location for h_errnoRich Felker-0/+1
we do not bother making h_errno thread-local since the only interfaces that use it are inherently non-thread-safe. but still use the potentially-thread-local ABI to access it just to avoid lock-in.
