NAME

hesiod.conf - Configuration file for the Hesiod library 

DESCRIPTION

The file hesiod.conf determines the behavior of the Hesiod library.Blank lines and lines beginning with a `#' character are ignored. Allother lines should be of the formvariable=value,where the value should be a single word. Possible variables andvalues are:
lhs
Specifies the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries. In almost allcases, you should specify ``lhs=.ns''. The default value if you donot specify an lhs value is no domain prefix, which is not compatiblewith most Hesiod domains.
rhs
Specifies the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overridden bytheHES_DOMAINenvironment variable. You must specify an rhs line for the Hesiodlibrary to work properly.
classes
Specifies which DNS classes Hesiod should do lookups in. Possiblevalues are IN (the preferred class) and HS (the deprecated class,still used by some sites). You may specify both classes separated bya comma to try one class first and then the other if no entry isavailable in the first class. The default value of the classesvariable is ``IN,HS''.

BUGS

There default value for ``lhs'' should probably be more reasonable.
