Perl and python-- I wasn't even thinking of that! Thank you. I have installed python now on the FreeBSD system and will start learning it. A records look like: hydrogen.cis.osu. 43200 IN A 192.168.2.123 Text or TXT records look similar except that the data they convey are ASCII text strings of various information that are either read by people or maybe tell servers how to behave toward that particular client. hydrogen.cis.osu. 5 IN TXT "cordell-north,009,192.168.2.123" Our hope is to have an output line looking like: 192.168.2.123 hydrogen.cis.osu "cordell-north,009,192.168.2.123" We will actually run that output through sed to convert the "'s to blanks and also the ,'s to blanks but that is trivial. Thanks for the examples.
