NAME

Net::DNS::RR::TXT - DNS TXT resource record

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

use Net::DNS::RR;

DESCRIPTION

Class for DNS Text (TXT) resource records.

METHODS

txtdata



    print "txtdata = ", $rr->txtdata, "\n";



Returns the descriptive text as a single string, regardless of actual number of <character-string> elements. Of questionable value. Should be deprecated.

Use $txt->rdatastr() or $txt->char_str_list() instead.

char_str_list



 print "Individual <character-string> list: \n\t",
       join("\n\t", $rr->char_str_list());



Returns a list of the individual <character-string> elements, as unquoted strings. Used by TXT->rdatastr and TXT->rr_rdata.

FEATURES

The RR.pm module accepts semi-colons as a start of a comment. This is to allow the RR.pm to deal with RFC1035 specified zonefile format.

For some applications of the TXT RR the semicolon is relevant, you will need to escape it on input.

Also note that you should specify the several character strings separately. The easiest way to do so is to include the whole argument in single quotes and the several character strings in double quotes. Double quotes inside the character strings will need to be escaped.

my $TXTrr=Net::DNS::RR->new(’txt2.t.net-dns.org.        60      IN
        TXT Test1 \ \; more stuff Test2"’);

would result in $TXTrr->char_str_list())[0] containing ’Test1 " ; more stuff’ and $TXTrr->char_str_list())[1] containing ’Test2’
