DNS client library designed to replace the BIND res_*/dn_* library

High-level lookups:

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.

Low-level lookups:

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 for details.

This package contains the shared library.
