       cdist-type__hosts - manage entries in /etc/hosts

DESCRIPTION

       Add or remove entries from /etc/hosts file.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       state  If  state  is  present, make object_id resolve to ip. If state is absent, object_id
              will no longer resolve via /etc/hosts, if it was previously  configured  with  this
              type.  Manually inserted entries are unaffected.

       ip     IP  address, to which hostname (=object_id) must resolve. If state is present, this
              parameter is mandatory, if state is absent, this parameter is silently ignored.

EXAMPLES

          # Now `funny' resolves to 192.168.1.76,
          __hosts funny --ip 192.168.1.76
          # and `happy' no longer resolve via /etc/hosts if it was
          # previously configured via __hosts.
          __hosts happy --state absent
