dnsqr(1) asks for records of type


dnsqr t fqdn


dnsqr asks for records of type t under the domain name fqdn. It prints the results in a human-readable format, more compact than the dig output format.

t may be a name or number. Currently recognized names: any, a, ns, mx, ptr, txt, cname, soa, hinfo, rp, sig, key, aaaa, axfr. Note that, if you want to perform a zone transfer, you should use axfr-get(8), not dnsqr axfr.

dnsqr is available in djbdns 1.01 and above.
