Summary: Advanced, easy to use, asynchronous-capable DNS client library
adns is a resolver library for C (and C++) programs. In contrast with
the existing interfaces, gethostbyname et al and libresolv, it has the
following features:
    * It is reasonably easy to use for simple programs which just want
      to translate names to addresses, look up MX records, etc.
    * It can be used in an asynchronous, non-blocking, manner. Many
      queries can be handled simultaneously.
    * Responses are decoded automatically into a natural representation
      for a C program - there is no need to deal with DNS packet
    * Sanity checking (eg, name syntax checking, reverse/forward
      correspondence, CNAME pointing to CNAME) is performed
    * Time-to-live, CNAME and other similar information is returned in
      an easy-to-use form, without getting in the way.
    * There is no global state in the library; resolver state is an
      opaque data structure which the client creates explicitly. A
      program can have several instances of the resolver.
    * Errors are reported to the application in a way that distinguishes
      the various causes of failure properly.
    * Understands conventional resolv.conf, but this can overridden by
      environment variables.
    * Flexibility. For example, the application can tell adns to: ignore
      environment variables (for setuid programs), disable sanity checks
      eg to return arbitrary data, override or ignore resolv.conf in
      favour of supplied configuration, etc.
    * Believed to be correct ! For example, will correctly back off to
      TCP in case of long replies or queries, or to other nameservers if
      several are available. It has sensible handling of bad responses
