NAME

Net::DNS::FAQ - Frequently Asked Net::DNS Questions

SYNOPSIS

 perldoc Net::DNS::FAQ

DESCRIPTION

This document serves to answer the most frequently asked questions on both the Net::DNS Mailing List and those sent to the author.

The latest version of this FAQ can be found at http://www.net-dns.org/docs/FAQ.html

GENERAL

What is Net::DNS?

Net::DNS is a perl implementation of a DNS resolver.

INSTALLATION

Where can I find Test::More?

Test::More is part of the Test-Simple package, by Michael G Schwern. You should be able to find the distrubution here:

        http://search.cpan.org/dist/Test-Simple/

USAGE

Why does Net::DNS::Resolver::query() return undef when the ANSWER section is empty?

The short answer is, don't use query(). Net::DNS::Resolver::send() will always return the answer packet, as long as an answer was received.

The longer answer is that query() is modeled after the res_query() function from the libresolv C library, which has similar behaviors.
