[Ext-dns] examples?

Hello Fancis,
I apologize, I did not state my question correctly. I am writing an
ext-Dnsd child resolver, not client. I don't do C programming. I
attempted to look through the source code but could not really figure
out the format of child resolver replies. So, my question is about the
format of the child resolver replies, especially for SOA and MX
records and also the muli-line or multi-record replies.

Thank you very much.
