NAME

Net::DNS::ToolKit::Question - Resource Handler

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  DO NOT use Net::DNS::ToolKit::Question
  DO NOT require Net::DNS::ToolKit::Question

  Net::DNS::ToolKit::Question is autoloaded by
  class Net::DNS::ToolKit::RR and its methods
  are instantiated in a special manner.



DESCRIPTION

o ($newoff,$name,$type,$class) =
        $get->Question(\$buffer,$offset);

Get question from $buffer. Returns the expanded name, type and class.



  input:        pointer to buffer,
                offset into buffer
  returns:      new offset,
                expanded name,
                type,
                class



o ($newoff,@dnptrs) =
        $put->Question(\$buffer,$offset,
        $name,$type,$class,\@dnptrs);

Append a question to the $buffer. Returns a new pointer array for compressed names and the offset to the next RR.

NOTE: it is up to the user to update the question count. See: put_qdcount

Since the <B>questionB> usually is the first record to be appended to the buffer, @dnptrs may be ommitted. See the details at dn_comp.

Usage: ($newoff,@dnptrs)=$put->Question(\$buffer,$offset,
        $name,$type,$class);



  input:        pointer to buffer,
                offset into buffer,

                question class,
                pointer to array of
                  previously compressed names,
  returns:      offset to next record,
                updated array of offsets to
                  previous compressed names



o ($name,$typeTXT,$classTXT) =
        $parse->Question($name,$type,$class);
