WSGetDomainNameList (C Function)

char ** WSGetDomainNameList(WSENV env, unsigned long *s)

returns a list of ASCII strings containing the domain names available on the machine and the length of the list in s.


  • WSGetDomainNameList() loads the DNS domain names for each active network interface available on the machine.
  • WSGetDomainNameList() allocates memory to store the domain names that must be released. To release the memory allocated by WSGetDomainNameList(), call WSReleaseDomainNameList() on the list returned by WSGetDomainNameList().
  • WSGetDomainNameList() returns NULL on failure.
  • WSGetDomainNameList() is declared in the WSTP header file wstp.h.
