DNS::Config - DNS Configuration


use DNS::Config;

my $config = new DNS::Config();



This class represents a configuration for a domain name service daemon (DNS).


A domain name service daemon configuration knows about the zone information actively provided to the service users as well as lots of other configuration data.

This class allows to represent this configuration data in a more or less generic way. Another class, the file adaptor, then knows how to write the information to a file in a daemon specific format.

So far this class is strongly related to the ISCs Bind domain name service daemon but it is inteded to get more generic in upcoming releases. Your help is welcome.
