NAME
       dnsname - does a	reverse	lookup for the IP address

SYNOPSIS
       dnsname a.b.c.d

DESCRIPTION
       dnsname	does  a	 reverse lookup	for the	IP address a.b.c.d.  It	prints
       the first domain	name for that address.	If no domain names are	listed
       in  DNS,	 dnsname  prints  a  blank  line.  You can list	several	IP ad-
       dresses;	dnsname	prints each result on a	separate line.

       There is	also a dnsfilter(1) program that reads IP addresses  from  its
       input and performs many reverse lookups in parallel.

       Normally	 dnsname  exits	 0.  If	dnsname	encounters a temporary problem
       that prevents it	from determining the domain name, it prints  an	 error
       message and exits 111.
