Easy to use asynchronous-capable DNS client library and utilities

adns is a resolver library for C and C++ programs. In contrast with the existing interfaces, gethostbyname et al and libresolv, it has the following features

  • It is reasonably easy to use for simple programs which just want to translate names to addresses, look up MX records, etc.
  • It can be used in an asynchronous, non-blocking, manner. Many queries can be handled simultaneously.

Technical note adns requires a real nameserver like BIND or Dents running on the same system or a nearby one, which must be willing to provide recursive service'. I.e., adns is a stub resolver’.
