Ernie,

I'll start by admitting that I don't have any interest in this
particular problem, and nor am I familiar with the differences
between Free BSD tools and the "equivalents" I use on linux.

But I get the general impression that google can often provide some
help (although sometimes it can be a PITA to work out *what* search
terms you need.  OTOH, I suppose you aren't allowed to google for
solutions ;-)  If that is true, you really need to get that
restriction removed.

For perl, Net-DNS looks like the module you probably need : go to
search.cpan.org (if you are allowed to do that) and look for it -
maybe I'm wrong and the examples (i.e. example uses) listed on the
summary page are not what you're trying to do with dns lookup.

Regards,

ĸen
