DNS library that facilitates DNS tool programming

LDNS aims to simplify DNS programming, it supports recent RFCs like the DNSSEC documents, and allows developers to easily create software conforming to current RFCs, and experimental software for current Internet Drafts. A secondary benefit of using ldns is speed; ldns is written in C it should be a lot faster than Perl.


Install the latest version of ldns as follows:

guix install ldns

Or install a particular version:

guix install ldns@1.8.3

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
