       tinydyndns-update - update TYPE A record in data.cdb


       tinydyndns-update fqdn dynip


       tinydyndns-update  changes  the  data  of  a  TYPE  A  record  in  data.cdb in the current
       directory.  Other than tinydns-data(8), tinydndns-update does not know  about  the  source
       file data but changes the binary database data.cdb directly.

       First tinydyndns-update checks if the given fqdn has a TYPE A record in data.cdb.  Then it
       checks if the given IP address differs from the one in the TYPE A record in  data.cdb,  or
       if  the  record's  timestamp  should  be  updated.   Finally  if data.cdb needs to change,
       tinydyndns-update copies data.cdb to data.tmp, changes the IP address of the TYPE A record
       of  fqdn to dynip in data.tmp, optionally adjusts time-to-live or time-to-die, and renames
       data.tmp to data.cdb.


       TTL    time-to-live.  The environment variable TTL overrides the default  time-to-live  in
              seconds  (0  if  TTD is set, otherwise 5).  If TTL is not set or zero, the time-to-
              live of the record will not change.  $TTL must be an integer.

       TTD    time-to-die.  $TTD must be an integer, specifying a number of seconds.  If  TTD  is
              set,  the timestamp of the record is set to the current time plus $TTD seconds, and
              TTL is set to zero by default, so that tinydns(8) interprets the timestamp as time-
              to-die.  Note: you probably want to adjust SOA ttl, or create a wildcard record, to
              prevent DNS caches from caching nxdomain, when using this feature.

       LOC    location.  $LOC must be two characters long.  If  LOC  is  set,  it  specifies  the
              client location for records to be updated.


       If tinydyndns-update cannot find a TYPE A record for fqdn in data.cdb, it prints a warning
       and exits 114.

       If dynip does not differ from the IP address of the TYPE A record of fqdn in data.cdb, and
       the environment variable TTD is not set, tinydyndns-update prints a note and exits 0.

       tinydyndns-update  exits  100  if  it  has  trouble  opening data.cdb, and leaves data.cdb

       tinydyndns-update exits 111 on temporary error, and leaves data.cdb unchanged.

       If data.cdb was changed successfully, tinydyndns-update exits 0.
