HESIOD.CONF(5)		      File Formats Manual		HESIOD.CONF(5)

NAME
       hesiod.conf - Configuration file	for the	Hesiod library

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  hesiod.conf  determines  the behavior	of the Hesiod library.
       Blank lines and lines beginning with a `#' character are	ignored.   All
       other  lines  should  be	 of the	form variable =	value, where the value
       should be a single word.	 Possible variables and	values are:

       lhs    Specifies	the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries.  In	almost
	      all cases, you should specify ``lhs=.ns''.  The default value if
	      you do not specify an lhs	value is no domain  prefix,  which  is
	      not compatible with most Hesiod domains.

       rhs    Specifies	 the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overrid-
	      den by the HES_DOMAIN environment	variable.  You must specify an
	      rhs line for the Hesiod library to work properly.

       classes
	      Specifies	which DNS classes Hesiod should	do lookups in.	Possi-
	      ble values are IN	(the preferred class) and HS  (the  deprecated
	      class,  still used by some sites).  You may specify both classes
	      separated	by a comma to try one class first and then  the	 other
	      if  no entry is available	in the first class.  The default value
	      of the classes variable is ``IN,HS''.

BUGS
       There default value for ``lhs'' should probably be more reasonable.
