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

NAME
       Net::DNS::Question - DNS question record

SYNOPSIS
	   use Net::DNS::Question;

	   $question = new Net::DNS::Question('example.com', 'A', 'IN');

DESCRIPTION
       A Net::DNS::Question object represents a record in the question section of a DNS packet.

METHODS
   new
	   $question = new Net::DNS::Question('example.com', 'A', 'IN');
	   $question = new Net::DNS::Question('example.com');

	   $question = new Net::DNS::Question('192.0.32.10', 'PTR', 'IN');
	   $question = new Net::DNS::Question('192.0.32.10');

       Creates a question object from the domain, type, and class passed as arguments. One or
       both type and class arguments may be omitted and will assume the default values shown
       above.

       RFC4291 and RFC4632 IP address/prefix notation is supported for queries in both
       in-addr.arpa and ip6.arpa namespaces.

   decode
	   $question = decode Net::DNS::Question(\$data, $offset);

	   ($question, $offset) = decode Net::DNS::Question(\$data, $offset);

       Decodes the question record at the specified location within a DNS wire-format packet.
       The first argument is a reference to the buffer containing the packet data.  The second
       argument is the offset of the start of the question record.

       Returns a Net::DNS::Question object and the offset of the next location in the packet.

       An exception is raised if the object cannot be created (e.g., corrupt or insufficient
       data).

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

       Returns the Net::DNS::Question in binary format suitable for inclusion in a DNS packet
       buffer.

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

   name
	   $name = $question->name;

       Internationalised domain name corresponding to the qname attribute.

       Decoding non-ASCII domain names is computationally expensive and undesirable for names
       which are likely to be used to construct further queries.

       When required to communicate with humans, the 'proper' domain name should be extracted
       from a query or reply packet.

	   $query = new Net::DNS::Packet( $example, 'ANY' );
	   $reply = $resolver->send($query) or die;
	   ($question) = $reply->question;
	   $name = $question->name;

   qname, zname
	   $qname = $question->qname;
	   $zname = $question->zname;

       Canonical ASCII domain name as required for the query subject transmitted to a nameserver.
       In dynamic update packets, this attribute is known as zname() and refers to the zone name.

   qtype, ztype
	   $qtype = $question->qtype;
	   $ztype = $question->ztype;

       Returns the question type attribute.  In dynamic update packets, this attribute is known
       as ztype() and refers to the zone type.

   qclass, zclass
	   $qclass = $question->qclass;
	   $zclass = $question->zclass;

       Returns the question class attribute.  In dynamic update packets, this attribute is known
       as zclass() and refers to the zone class.

   print
	   $object->print;

       Prints the record to the standard output.  Calls the string() method to get the string
       representation.

   string
	   print "string = ", $question->string, "\n";

       Returns a string representation of the question record.
