TNM Domain Name System

Tnm::dns [options]

Invoking the Tnm::dns command with options but without any command arguments allows retrieving and changing the default values. Default values are bound to a Tcl interpreter, which allows having multiple Tcl interpreters with different defaults.
Tnm::dns [options] address host
The Tnm::dns address command sends a query to retrieve the address record for the specified host. The command returns the list of IP addresses for the given host name.
Tnm::dns [options] name address
The Tnm::dns name command sends a query to retrieve the domain name pointer record. A pointer record maps an IP address to a fully qualified domain name. The command returns the fully qualified domain name for the given IP address.
Tnm::dns [options] hinfo name
The Tnm::dns hinfo command sends a query to retrieve the host information (HINFO) record. The command returns a list containing two elements. The first element describes the hardware type and the second element the operating system.
Tnm::dns [options] mx name
The Tnm::dns mx command sends a query to retrieve the mail exchanger (MX) record. The command returns a list of mail exchanger records if name is a domain name for which one or more MX records exist. Each element of this list contains a fully qualified domain name and its priority.
