NAME
     hesiod.conf -- configuration file for the Hesiod library

DESCRIPTION
     The file hesiod.conf determines the behavior of the Hesiod library.  Blank lines and lines
     beginning with a '#' character are ignored.  All other lines should be of the form variable
     = value, where the value should be a single word.	Possible variables and values are:

     lhs      Specifies the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries.  In almost all cases, you
	      should specify ``lhs=.ns''.  The default value if you do not specify an lhs value
	      is no domain prefix, which is not compatible with most Hesiod domains.

     rhs      Specifies the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overridden by the HES_DOMAIN
	      environment variable.  You must specify an rhs line for the Hesiod library to work
	      properly.

     classes  Specifies which DNS classes Hesiod should do lookups in.	Possible values are IN
	      (the preferred class) and HS (the deprecated class, still used by some sites).  You
	      may specify both classes separated by a comma to try one class first and then the
	      other if no entry is available in the first class.  The default value of the
	      classes variable is ``IN,HS''.

BUGS
     There default value for ``lhs'' should probably be more reasonable.
