NAME
       ldns-walk - Retrieve the contents of a DNSSEC signed zone

SYNOPSIS
       ldns-walk [ OPTION ] ZONE

DESCRIPTION
       ldns-walk  is used to retrieve the contents of a DNSSEC signed zone.  It does this through
       NSEC-walking (following the chain of NSEC records) and 'guessing'  the  next  non-existent
       owner name for each NSEC.

       Note  that  it  might  get stuck on some wildcard records when used through a caching for-
       warder. This problem can be circumvented by querying the authoritative nameserver directly
       (with the @ argument).

       Of course the nameserver that is used must be DNSSEC-aware.

OPTIONS
       -4     Use only IPv4.

       -6     Use only IPv6.

       -f     Do  a  'full'  zone walk; by default, ldns-walk will only show the names, and types
	      present at those names. If this option is  given,  all  resource	records  will  be
	      printed.

       -s name
	      Start  the  walk	with this owner name. Useful when continuing the walk for a large
	      zone.

       -v verbosity
	      Verbosity level [1-5].

       @ nameserver
	      Send the queries to this nameserver.

BUGS
       The full zone walk function is not complete yet, it does not  correctly	print  delegation
       records
