dns_tree — command-line frontend to dig
dns_tree [-f] [-v] [-d] [-t TYPE] [-m MATCH] DNS_domain
This manual page documents briefly the dns_tree command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. dns_tree is a program that works as a front-end to dig. Given a specific domain dns_tree will make several dig invocations to fetch a zone and it will format the output in in a somewhat sensible hierarchical style (a tree). Information extracted from the DNS relies on being possible to fetch a zone through a zone transfer. If the DNS servers for the requested domain do not allow file transfers dns_tree will not be able to obtain information from the zone. All data obtain is cached in ~/.DNS_BROWSE with an approximation of the usual DNS caching rules. Remove all files in that directory to prematurely flush the cache.
A summary of options is included below. -t TYPE Show only records of TYPE. This argument can be repeated to indicate multiple types. Use the "all" type to print all the known types. -m MATCH Show only records in which the first component matches the PERL regexpt MATCH. -h Show summary of options. -v Enable verbose mode. All DNS requests are printed in the standard error. -d Enable debug output. Presents internal information of the program -f Override warnings (force).
