dns_browse and dns_tree
=======================

WHAT ARE dns_browse and dns_tree?
---------------------------------

dns_tree is a command-line-based front-end to dig.  It replaces the
several dig invocations necessary to fetch a zone, and it formats the
output in a somewhat sensible hierarchical style (a tree).

dns_browse is a GUI front-end to dns_tree.  It allows point-and-click
DNS browsing and makes it easy to expand/compress hierarchies in one
or more DNS zones.


WHAT'S NEW WITH THIS RELEASE?
-----------------------------

1.6:  15 December 1997
Fixed another installation bug (problem reported by Brian Heess
<dmbong@commline.com>).  Added support for BIND-8's dig
(problem reported by Noel Hunt <noel@jpmorgan.com>).



REQUIREMENTS
------------

dns_tree requires dig and Perl 5.002 or later.
dns_browse requires Tk-4.2 or later.


AVAILABILITY and BUGS
---------------------

The latest version of dns_browse and dns_tree is available at 
<http://www.isi.edu/~johnh/SOFTWARE/DNS/index.html>.

Feedback about these tools is welcome; send comments to John
Heidemann, <johnh@isi.edu>.


INSTALLATION
------------

These tools use GNU autoconf.  To configure, run ./configure, then
type ``make install''.  To install in different places, run
``./configure --prefix=/local'' or ``./configure --bindir=/local''.

If autoconf doesn't work you can install the scripts by hand to
changing their #! lines.


RELEASE HISTORY
---------------

1.4:  23 November 1997
The first public release.  Prior versions were
used internally to spy on the Lybians.  (Actually, I'm ly'ing.)

1.5:  2 December 1997
Fixed an autoconf bug where by default the program tried
to install in the cwd.  (Bug reported by
Wilfried Woeber <woeber@cc.univie.ac.at>.)

1.6:  15 December 1997
Fixed another installation bug (problem reported by Brian Heess
<dmbong@commline.com>).  Added support for BIND-8's dig
(problem reported by Noel Hunt <noel@jpmorgan.com>).
