Net::DNS::RR::TXT - DNS TXT resource record
Class for DNS Text (TXT) resource records.
print "txtdata = ", $rr->txtdata, "\n";
Returns the descriptive text as a single string, regardless of actual
number of <character-string> elements. Of questionable value. Should
Use "$txt->rdatastr()" or "$txt->char_str_list()" instead.
print "Individual <character-string> list: \n\t",
Returns a list of the individual <character-string> elements, as
unquoted strings. Used by TXT->rdatastr and TXT->rr_rdata.
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()) containing 'Test1 " ; more
stuff' and $TXTrr->char_str_list()) containing 'Test2'
