in thread Net::Dns::packet creation.

shadrack gave a good answer by using gethostbyaddr with the pack function to no use the Socket module which is tricky.
We normally would do :
#!/usr/bin/perl use Socket; #Resolve IP address into hostname sub ReverseLookup { my(@addrs,$xname,$xaliases,$xtype,$xlen,$addr); # @addrs=split(/\./,$_[0]); # $addr=pack('c4',@addrs[0..3]); # c or C - A signed/unsigned char +(8-bit integer) value $addr = inet_aton($_[0..3]); ($xname,$xaliases,$xtype,$xlen,@addrs)=gethostbyaddr($addr,2); return $xname; }
We don't know why MonkeyManChfKiller don't want to use modules, it's his choice but obviously this can be achieved in another way with perl.
Nice use of pack() which I don't see very often.
