in thread Reliable FQDN from IP

He needs a script that can run on systems where he knows they will be configured to query DNS that would return reasonable FQDNs (where "fully qualified" is important) and where people using those systems might have good reason to set up short aliases in their /etc/hosts files for their own purposes. And now he has code for such a script that will get the fully qualified domain names he needs.
