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

NAME
       Net::DNS::DomainName - DNS domain name wire representation

SYNOPSIS
	   use Net::DNS::DomainName;

	   $object = new Net::DNS::DomainName('example.com');
	   $name = $object->name;
	   $data = $object->encode;

	   ( $object, $next ) = decode Net::DNS::DomainName( \$data, $offset );

DESCRIPTION
       The Net::DNS::DomainName module implements the concrete representation of DNS domain names
       used within DNS packets.

       Net::DNS::DomainName defines methods for encoding and decoding wire format octet strings
       as defined in RFC1035. All other behaviour, including the new() constructor, is inherited
       from Net::DNS::Domain.

       The Net::DNS::DomainName1035 and Net::DNS::DomainName2535 packages implement disjoint
       domain name subtypes which provide the name compression and canonicalisation specified by
       RFC1035 and RFC2535.  These are necessary to meet the backward compatibility requirements
       introduced by RFC3597.

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

       Creates a domain name object which identifies the domain specified by the character string
       argument.

   decode
	   $object = decode Net::DNS::DomainName( \$buffer, $offset, $hash );

	   ( $object, $next ) = decode Net::DNS::DomainName( \$buffer, $offset, $hash );

       Creates a domain name object which represents the DNS domain name identified by the wire-
       format data at the indicated offset within the data buffer.

       The argument list consists of a reference to a scalar containing the wire-format data and
       specified offset. The optional reference to a hash table provides improved efficiency of
       decoding compressed names by exploiting already cached compression pointers.

       The returned offset value indicates the start of the next item in the data buffer.

   encode
	   $data = $object->encode;

       Returns the wire-format representation of the domain name suitable for inclusion in a DNS
       packet buffer.

Net::DNS::DomainName1035
       Net::DNS::DomainName1035 implements a subclass of domain name objects which are to be
       encoded using the compressed wire format defined in RFC1035.

	   use Net::DNS::DomainName;

	   $object = new Net::DNS::DomainName1035('compressible.example.com');
	   $data   = $object->encode( $offset, $hash );

	   ( $object, $next ) = decode Net::DNS::DomainName1035( \$data, $offset );

       Note that RFC3597 implies that the RR types defined in RFC1035 section 3.3 are the only
       types eligible for compression.

   encode
	   $data = $object->encode( $offset, $hash );

       Returns the wire-format representation of the domain name suitable for inclusion in a DNS
       packet buffer.

       The optional arguments are the offset within the packet data where the domain name is to
       be stored and a reference to a hash table used to index compressed names within the
       packet.

       If the hash reference is undefined, encode() returns the lowercase uncompressed canonical
       representation defined in RFC2535(8.1).

Net::DNS::DomainName2535
       Net::DNS::DomainName2535 implements a subclass of domain name objects which are to be
       encoded using uncompressed wire format.

       Note that RFC3597, and latterly RFC4034, specifies that the lower case canonical encoding
       defined in RFC2535 is to be used for RR types defined prior to RFC3597.

	   use Net::DNS::DomainName;

	   $object = new Net::DNS::DomainName2535('incompressible.example.com');
	   $data   = $object->encode( $offset, $hash );

	   ( $object, $next ) = decode Net::DNS::DomainName2535( \$data, $offset );

   encode
	   $data = $object->encode( $offset, $hash );

       Returns the uncompressed wire-format representation of the domain name suitable for
       inclusion in a DNS packet buffer.

       If the hash reference is undefined, encode() returns the lowercase canonical form defined
       in RFC2535(8.1).
