DESCRIPTION

Net::DNSBL::Utilities contains functions used to build DNSBL emulator daemons.

  • s_response($mp,$resp,$id,$qdcount,$ancount,$nscount,$arcount);

    Put a short response into the message buffer pointed to by $mp by sticking a new header on the EXISTING received query.

      input:        msg pointer,
                    id of question,
                    qd, an, ns, ar counts
      returns:      nada
  • not_found($put,$name,$type,$id,$mp,$srp);

    Put a new 'not found' response in the buffer pointed to by $mp.

      input:        put,
                    name,
                    type,
                    id,
                    message buffer pointer,
                    SOA record pointer
      returns:      nothing
  • write_stats($sfile,$cp,$sinit,$csize,$cache);

    Write out the contents of the accumulated statistics buffer to the STATs file.

      input:        statistics file path,
                    pointer to count hash,
                    initial timestamp line text
                    cache flag/max size
                    current cache size
      returns:      nothing
  • $rv = bystat($cp);

    Return sort value +-1 or 0 for stat sort

      input:        $a,$b sort values
                    pointer to count hash
      returns:      sort decision value
  • $timestamp = statinit($Sfile,$cp);

    Initialize the contents of the statistics hash with the file contents of $Sfile, if $Sfile exists and there are corresponding entries in the statistics hash. i.e. the statistics hash keys must first be initialized with the DNSBL (or LABEL) names.

      input:        statistics file path,
                    pointer to count hash
      returns:      timestamp line for file
                    or undef on failure
  • cntinit($DNSBL,$cp);

    Initialize the statistics count hash with DNSBL keys and set the counts to zero.

    For compatibility with other applications, LABEL names other than the DNSBL's must NOT contain '.' Only the keys in the DNSBL hash that contain '.'s are added to the count hash.

    The count hash is first emptied if it is not null to begin with.

      input:        pointer to DNSBL hash,
                    pointer to counts hash
      returns:      nothing
  • list2hash(\@list,$cp,$val);

    Add a list of names as keys to the statistics count hash and set the hash value to $val or zero if $val is not present.

    For compatibility with other applications, the labels in "list" must not contain the character '.'

      input:        pointer to list of labels,
                    pointer to counts hash,
                    value [optional]
      returns:      nothing
  • $rv = DO($file,$nowarnings);

    This is a fancy 'do file'. It first checks that the file exists and is readable, then does a 'do file' to pull the variables and subroutines into the current name space.

    See the documentation File::SafeDO

      input:        file/path/name
      returns:      last value in file
                or  undef on error
                prints warning
  • $rv = DO($file,$nowarnings);

    This is a fancy 'do file'. It first checks that the file exists and is readable, then does a 'do file' to pull the variables and subroutines into the current name space.

    See the documentation File::SafeDO

      input:        file/path/name
      returns:      last value in file
                or  undef on error
                prints warning
  • $sock = open_udpNB();

    Open and return a non-blocking UDP socket object

      input:        none
      returns:      pointer to socket object
                    or undef on failure
  • $rv=list2NetAddr(\@inlist,\@NAobject);

    Build of NetAddr object structure from a list of IPv4 addresses or address ranges. This object is passed to matchNetAddr to check if a given IP address is contained in the list.

      input:        array reference pointer
                    to a list of addresses
    
      i.e.          11.22.33.44
                    11.22.33.0/24
                    11.22.33.0/255.255.255.0
                    11.22.33.20-11.22.33.46
                    11.22.33.20 - 11.22.33.46
    
      output:       Number of objects created
                    or undef on error

    The NAobject array is filled with NetAddr::IP::Lite object references.

  • $rv = matchNetAddr($ip,\@NAobject);

    Check if an IP address appears in a list of NetAddr objects.

      input:        dot quad IP address,
                    reference to NetAddr objects
      output:       true if match else false
  • ($countries,$code3s,$names) = list_countries;

    The function returns the list of 2 character, 3 character and country code names from the Geo::IP::PurePerl module if it is installed.

      input:        none
      returns:      \@countries,\@code3s,\@names
                    blessed into callers namespace

    NOTE: this process is very inefficient and should not be called in a repetitive fashion.

    If Geo::IP::PurePerl is not installed, the function returns and empty array and sets $@;

  • setAUTH(true/false);

    Set the Authoratitive Answer bit true or false for all replys

      input:        true/false
      returns:      nothing
  • setRA(true/false);

    Set the Recursion Allowed bit true or false for all replys

      input:        true/false
      returns:      nothing
  • $netaddr = A127x

    Functions A1271, A1272, A1273, etc..., return the packed network address for 127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.2, etc.... respectively
