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. All other lines should be of the form variable = value, where the value should be a single word. Possible variables and values are: lhs Specifies the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries. In almost all cases, you should specify ``lhs=.ns''. The default value if you do not specify an lhs value is no domain prefix, which is not compatible with most Hesiod domains. rhs Specifies the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overrid- den by the HES_DOMAIN environment variable. You must specify an rhs line for the Hesiod library to work properly. classes Specifies which DNS classes Hesiod should do lookups in. Possi- ble values are IN (the preferred class) and HS (the deprecated class, still used by some sites). You may specify both classes separated by a comma to try one class first and then the other if no entry is available in the first class. The default value of the classes variable is ``IN,HS''.

BUGS
There default value for ``lhs'' should probably be more reasonable. NetBSD 9.99 November 30, 1996 NetBSD 9.99
