dnsfilter - resolves IP addresses to host names
dnsfilter [ opts ]
dnsfilter reads a series of lines from stdin, converts an IP address to
a host name at the beginning of each line, and prints the results to
If a line does not begin with an IP address, dnsfilter leaves the line
alone. If an IP address does not have a host name listed in DNS,
dnsfilter leaves the line alone. If an IP address has a host name
listed in DNS, dnsfilter inserts an equals sign and the host name
before the first space or tab in the line. If a DNS lookup fails
temporarily, dnsfilter inserts a colon and a dash-separated error
message before the first space or tab in the line.
While dnsfilter is looking up an address in DNS, it reads ahead in the
input and looks for more addresses to look up in parallel.
opts is a series of getopt-style options:
-c n Do at most n DNS queries in parallel. Default: 10.
-l n Read ahead at most n lines. Default: 1000.
