    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.

[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
