Resolve handler requirements

A resolve handler must meet the requirements for a handler. A value h of a resolve handler class should work correctly in the expression h(ec, i), where ec is an lvalue of type const error_code and i is an lvalue of type const ip::basic_resolver_iterator<InternetProtocol>. InternetProtocol is the template parameter of the resolver_service which is used to initiate the asynchronous operation.

Examples

A free function as a resolve handler:

void resolve_handler(
    const boost::system::error_code& ec,
    boost::asio::ip::tcp::resolver::iterator iterator)
{
  ...
}

A resolve handler function object:

struct resolve_handler
{
  ...
  void operator()(
      const boost::system::error_code& ec,
      boost::asio::ip::tcp::resolver::iterator iterator)
  {
    ...
  }
  ...
};

A non-static class member function adapted to a resolve handler using bind():

void my_class::resolve_handler(
    const boost::system::error_code& ec,
    boost::asio::ip::tcp::resolver::iterator iterator)
{
  ...
}
...
resolver.async_resolve(...,
    boost::bind(&my_class::resolve_handler,
      this, boost::asio::placeholders::error,
      boost::asio::placeholders::iterator));
