       jjddrreessoollvvee  resolves  IP	addresses  to hostnames. Any file format  is
       supported, including those where	the line does not  begin  with	the
       IP  address.  One  of the strongest features  of	 the program  is  the
       support for recursion, which  can  drastically  reduce  the  number of
       unresolved hosts	 by  faking a hostname based on	the network that the
       IP  belongs  to.	 DNS  queries are sent in parallel, which means	 that
       you  can	 decrease run time by increasing the number  of	 simultaneous
       sockets used (given a fast enough machine and available bandwidth ).
       By  using the database support,	performance  can  be  increased	even
       further,	by using cached	data from previous runs.

       --hh,, ----hheellpp
	       produces	a short	help message

       --vv,, ----vveerrssiioonn
	       display version information

       --nn,, ----nnoo--ssttaattss
	       don't display stats after processing

       --rr,, ----rreeccuurrssiivvee
	       recurse	into  C, B and A classes when there is no PTR (default
	       is no recursion)

       --dd,, ----ddeebbuugg==<ddeebbuugg--lleevveell>
	       debug  mode  -  no  file	 output,  just statistics during run
	       (verbosity level	range: 1-3)

       --tt,, ----ttiimmeeoouutt==<sseeccoonnddss>
	       timeout	 in  seconds  for  each	 host  resolution (default is
	       30 seconds)

       --ll,, ----lliinnee--ccaacchhee==<lliinneess>
	       numbers	of  lines  to cache in memory (default is 10000

       --ss,, ----ssoocckkeettss==<ssoocckkeettss>
	       maximum	number	of concurrent sockets (use ulimit -a  to
	       check  the  max allowed for your	operating system - defaults to

       --mm,, ----mmaasskk==<mmaasskk>
	       <mask>  accepts	%i for IP and %c for class owner, e.g.
	       ""  or ""	(default is "%i.%c")

       --aa,, ----aannyywwhheerree
	       resolves	 IPs  found  anywhere  on  a  line  (will resolve all
	       IPs if there is more than one)

       --pp,, ----pprrooggrreessss
	       prints  a  nice progress	bar indicating the status of the
	       resolve operations

       ----ddaattaabbaassee==<ddbb ppaatthh>
	       path to database	that holds resolved hosts/classes

	       check  if we have resolved entries in the database before
	       sending out DNS queries

	       don't  send DNS queries,	use only resolved data in the database

	       dumps a database	to STDOUT

	       merges  resolved	IP/classes from	a file (or STDIN) with a

	       expires	entries	 in  the  database that	are older than <hours>

	       won't  attempt  to  resolve  IPs, only lists those that were
	       not resolved

	       the log filename	or '-' for STDIN

	   jdresolve access_log	> resolved_log
	   jdresolve -r	-s 128 access_log > resolved_log
	   jdresolve -r	--database hosts.db access_log > res_log
