Net::DNS::Domain(3)	       User Contributed Perl Documentation	      Net::DNS::Domain(3)

NAME
       Net::DNS::Domain - Domain Name System domains

SYNOPSIS
	   use Net::DNS::Domain;

	   $domain = new Net::DNS::Domain('example.com');
	   $name   = $domain->name;

DESCRIPTION
       The Net::DNS::Domain module implements a class of abstract DNS domain objects with
       associated class and instance methods.

       Each domain object instance represents a single DNS domain which has a fixed identity
       throughout its lifetime.

       Internally, the primary representation is a (possibly empty) list of ASCII domain name
       labels, and optional link to an arbitrary origin domain object topologically closer to the
       DNS root.

       The presentation form of the domain name is generated on demand and the result cached
       within the object.

METHODS
   new
	   $object = new Net::DNS::Domain('example.com');

       Creates a domain object which represents the DNS domain specified by the character string
       argument. The argument consists of a sequence of labels delimited by dots.

       A character preceded by \ represents itself, without any special interpretation.

       Arbitrary 8-bit codes can be represented by \ followed by exactly three decimal digits.
       Character code points are ASCII, irrespective of the character coding scheme employed by
       the underlying platform.

       Argument string literals should be delimited by single quotes to avoid escape sequences
       being interpreted as octal character codes by the Perl compiler.

       The character string presentation format follows the conventions for zone files described
       in RFC1035.

   name
	   $name = $domain->name;

       Returns the domain name as a character string corresponding to the "common interpretation"
       to which RFC1034, 3.1, paragraph 9 alludes.

       Character escape sequences are used to represent a dot inside a domain name label and the
       escape character itself.

       Any non-printable code point is represented using the appropriate numerical escape
       sequence.

   fqdn
	   @fqdn = $domain->fqdn;

       Returns a character string containing the fully qualified domain name, including the
       trailing dot.

   xname
	   $xname = $domain->xname;

       Interprets an extended name containing Unicode domain name labels encoded as Punycode
       A-labels.

       Domain names containing Unicode characters are supported if the Net::LibIDN module is
       installed.

   label
	   @label = $domain->label;

       Identifies the domain by means of a list of domain labels.

   string
	   $string = $object->string;

       Returns a character string containing the fully qualified domain name as it appears in a
       zone file.

       Characters which are recognised by RFC1035 zone file syntax are represented by the
       appropriate escape sequence.

   origin
	   $create = origin Net::DNS::Domain( $ORIGIN );
	   $result = &$create( sub{ new Net::DNS::RR( 'mx MX 10 a' ); } );
	   $expect = new Net::DNS::RR( "mx.$ORIGIN. MX 10 a.$ORIGIN." );

       Class method which returns a reference to a subroutine wrapper which executes a given
       constructor in a dynamically scoped context where relative names are rooted at the
       specified $ORIGIN.

BUGS
       Coding strategy is intended to avoid creating unnecessary argument lists and stack frames.
       This improves efficiency at the expense of code readability.

       Platform specific character coding features are conditionally compiled into the code.
