dt-getquery(1) command-line test program for the val_res_query() function


dt-getquery [options] name


This utility is a command-line wrapper around the val_res_query() function. It invokes the val_res_query() function with the given command-line arguments and displays the returned data as a DNS-style response. It also displays the validation status value for the records returned for the query.

The exit status for this program is 1 if the answer received is trusted, 2 if the answer received is validated, and -1 for an error. The program returns 0 if the result was neither trusted nor validated. The trusted and validated status values are obtained using the val_istrusted() and val_isvalidated() functions from libval(3).
