7 tinydns-data files. The original has not been updated in many years.
8
9 == How do I install it? ==
10
11 It's a Perl script, so download it and put it in your $PATH. It comes
12 with a man page that can be installed to your system's $MANPATH as
13 well.
14
15 == How do I use it? ==
16
17 Run it on your tinydns-data files. If it finds errors, it will complain:
18
19 $ valtz example.com.tinydns
20 File example.com.tinydns
21 line 1; err 32 @example.com.::127.0.0.1:
22 expected: fqdn:ip:x:dist:ttl:timestamp:lo
23 pos 2; x; IP address found where hostname expected
24 $ echo $?
25 1
26
27 If it doesn't, it won't:
28
29 $ valtz example.org.tinydns
30 $ echo $?
31 0
