    Have you *declared* the 2 variables phenom told you about: $packet, $res?

    I suspect that is your problem.

      still crashes

      print "Web-Sorrow (Extra Tool) DNSpull v1"; use Net::DNS; use Getopt::Long; use warnings; use strict; my $Host = "none"; GetOptions("host=s" => \$Host); # usage if($Host eq "none"){ print "Usage: perl -host\n\t-host - domai +n name\n"; exit(); } print "+ ptr mx txt A AAAA KX IN records:\n"; my $packet = Net::DNS::Packet->new($Host, "PTR", "MX", "TXT", "A", "AA +AA"); print $packet->string;
        It's not crashing for me anymore, but it's not returning much information either. I assume you're trying to get information that would be returned from the "dig" command (such as dig ANY), but I don't get that response from this module.

        Frankly, I can't make heads or tails of the module's documentation. Is there a reason you chose this one over (e.g.) Net::DNS?

    Did you fix those errors I mentioned in the previous post?

    Also, I don't believe there's a "query" method in that module. Are you thinking of a different module? Try re-reading the documentation for that module.
