       hesiod.conf - Configuration file for the Hesiod library

       The  file  hesiod.conf  determines  the behavior of the Hesiod library.
       Blank lines and lines beginning with a # character are ignored.	 All
       other  lines  should  be  of the form variable = value, where the value
       should be a single word.  Possible variables and values are:

       lhs    Specifies the domain prefix used for Hesiod queries.  In	almost
	      all cases, you should specify lhs=.ns.  The default value if
	      you do not specify an lhs value is no domain  prefix,  which  is
	      not compatible with most Hesiod domains.

       rhs    Specifies  the default Hesiod domain; this value may be overrid
	      den by the HES_DOMAIN environment variable.  You must specify an
	      rhs line for the Hesiod library to work properly.

	      Specifies which DNS classes Hesiod should do lookups in.	Possi
	      ble values are IN (the preferred class) and HS  (the  deprecated
	      class,  still used by some sites).  You may specify both classes
	      separated by a comma to try one class first and then  the  other
	      if  no entry is available in the first class.  The default value
	      of the classes variable is IN,HS.


       There default value for lhs should probably be more reasonable.
