DESCRIPTION

These are configuration files used by hinfo. Only the first one found (in order) is used. The use statement may be used to chain hinfo configuration files.

The syntax is a small perl subset. Comments begin with # as the first non-space character on a line and continue to the end of line. Newlines are not treated specially otherwise, but should be used for readability. Whitespace between tokens is ignored.

STATEMENTS

use FILENAME; The use statement will process another file as if its lines were in the configuration file. FILENAME should be a quoted (single or double) string.

ASSIGNMENTS

$SCALAR = VAL;
@ARRAY = ( [VAL,]... );
%HASH = ( [VAL1 => VAL2,]... );

In array and hash assignment, the comma before the close paren is optional.

VAL may be any of:

Number (decimal integers only)

Quoted string (With single quotes, \\ is treated as a single backslash and #39; is a single quote. With double quotes, other backslash expansions are done.)

Array reference [ [VAL,]... ]

Hash reference { [VAL1 => VAL2,] }

Subroutine reference SUB (only a few subroutine names are supported)

Variable contents $VAR

Array contents (in array and array reference definitions only) @ARRAY

VARIABLES

The following variables are defined: (options that effect values are in parens.)

$html (-u) nonzero indicates html mode

$pager (-p, -n) Pager used

$verbose (-v) values -3 through 3 specify how many messages are displayed

$no_abuse (-a)

$no_blackhole (-b)

$no_whois (-w)

$no_domain (-d)

$whoistrash Regular expression of what to ignore in whois output.

$whoismltrash Regular expression of multi-line ignores in whois output.

$exclude Regular expression of blackhole lists to not use. Used to modify both @bhlists and @domainbased.

$expand_handles (-e) Negative to never expand NIC handles Zero to expand first NIC handle only Positive to expand all NIC handles

$timeout (-t) Number of seconds to wait for DNS and whois servers. Timeouts only occur when there have been no results from any request for this amount of time.

$whoistimeout Timeout parameter to IO::Socket::INET->new call.

$nameserver (-s)

@bhlists IP based blackhole lists to use.

@domainbased Domain based blackhole lists to use.

@version Displayed by --version

%registrys Hash mapping most significant IP octet to whois server

%refer Hash containing information about whois servers referring to other whois servers.

EXAMPLE

# use system defaults
use "/etc/hinfo.conf";
# set verbose mode
$verbose = 3;
# exclude .blackholes.us DNSBLs
$exclude = "\.blackholes\.us$";

BLACKHOLE LISTS

@bhlists and @domainbased are lists of DNSBL lists to check. Each list entry is a list reference.

DNS domain Domain to be postfixed to the reversed IP or domain name.

List name Name of the DNSBL

URL URL of the DNSBL. (Not including the leading http://)

explain subroutine Subroutine to explain the DNSBL results.

explain subroutine parameter Used by explain subroutine

EXPLAIN SUBROUTINES

\explain_bitmask Use the least significant bits of the IP returned as binary flags for each of the entries the the list referenced by parameter.

\explain_iterate Use the least significant bits of the IP returned as an index into the list referenced by parameter.

\explain_txt Fetch the TXT record from the DNSBL.

\explain_iterate_txt Perform actions of both \\&explain_iterate and \\&explain_txt.

USAGE

Examples of @bhlists and @domainbased are in /var/lib/hinfo/dnsbl.ins.pl, which is normally included with the use statement.

Examples of %registries, %refer, $whoistrash, and $whoismltrash are in /var/lib/hinfo/whois.ins.pl, which is also normally included with use.
