Thanks to you and all for the quick and correct answers. Your
mail was informative and contained everything I'd want to know
save one thing: where do I get dig?
It's /pub/dig.2.0.tar.Z on venera.isi.edu. While you're there, pick up
doc.2.0.tar.Z, the Domain Obscenity Checker. It does some consistency
I personally find dig to be far superior to nslookup. If nothing
else, I can predict what it's going to do, and what server it will
ask. And I like its command-line interface much better; it's more
UNIX-like, even if the details of the arguments aren't, and even
if its output is generally too verbose.
