DNS client library designed to replace the BIND res_*/dn_* library
The dns library provides several easy-to-use DNS lookup routines: dns_ip4, dns_ip4_qualify, dns_name4, dns_mx, and dns_txt.
dns_ip4_qualify supports the traditional configuration mechanisms for hostname rewriting: $LOCALDOMAIN, /etc/resolv.conf, and gethostname. It also supports a powerful new user-controlled rewriting mechanism.
The functions that read /etc/resolv.conf automatically reread it every ten minutes, so system administrators don't have to kill long-running programs.
The dns_domain_* and dns_packet_* functions make it easy to safely parse DNS packets. The dns_transmit_* functions send DNS queries of arbitrary types to arbitrary servers. These are the functions used in the dnscache program.
See http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/blurb/library.html for details.
This package contains the header files and the static library.
