AnyEvent::DNS::EtcHosts - Use /etc/hosts before DNS
AnyEventDNSEtcHosts AnyEventDNS behavior to use /etc/hosts
The DNS lookups are emulated. This resolver returns the standard DNS reply based on /etc/hosts file rather than real DNS. You can choose different file by changing PERL_ANYEVENT_HOSTS environment variable. This module also disables original AnyEventSocket’s helper function which reads /etc/hosts file after DNS entry was not found. It prevents to read this file twice. The AnyEventSocket resolver searches IPv4 and IPv6 addresses separately. If you don’t want to check the addresses in DNS, both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses should be placed in /etc/hosts or the protocol family should be set explicitly for resolve_sockaddr function.
