Net::DNS::RR::TXT(3pm)User Contributed Perl DocumentatioNet::DNS::RR::TXT(3pm)



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

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'
