NAME ^

Net::DNS::RR::OPT - DNS OPT

SYNOPSIS ^

use Net::DNS::RR;

DESCRIPTION ^

Class for EDNS pseudo resource record OPT.

METHODS ^

This object should only be used inside the Net::DNS classes itself.

new

Since "OPT" is a pseudo record and should not be stored in masterfiles; Therefore we have not implemented a method to create this RR from string.

One may create the object from a hash. See RFC 2671 for details for the meaning of the hash keys.

 $rr= Net::DNS::RR->new (
    name => "",                # Ignored and set to ""
    type => "OPT",
    class => 1024,             # sets UDP payload size
    extendedrcode =>  0x00,    # sets the extended RCODE 1 octets
    ednsflags     =>  0x0000,  # sets the ednsflags (2octets)
    optioncode   =>   0x0,     # 2 octets
    optiondata   =>   0x0      # optionlength octets
 );

The ednsversion is set to 0 for now. The ttl value is determined from the extendedrcode, the ednsversion and the ednsflag. The rdata is constructed from the optioncode and optiondata see section 4.4 of RFC 2671

If optioncode is left undefined then we do not expect any RDATA.

The defaults are no rdata.

do, set_do, clear_do

    $opt->set_do;

Reads, sets and clears the do flag. (first bit in the ednssflags);

size

    $opt->size(1498);
    print "Packet size:". $opt->size() ;

Sets or gets the packet size.

TODO ^

- This class is tailored to use with dnssec.

- Do some range checking on the input.

- This class probably needs subclasses once OPTION codes start to be defined.

- look at use of extended labels
