Crate netdb [] [src]

Querying the System’s Network Name Database

This crate allows querying the database of network-related names similar to the what can be found in POSIX’s netdb.h. The queries are performed in a way appropriate for the platform and consider the system’s configuration.

Note: This is not yet true for this initial release. It performs queries in a hard-wired fashion and probably only works correctly on Unix-y systems.

For each query, there are synchronous functions (generally prefixed with get_) as well as asynchronous functions return futures atop a Tokio reactor core (starting with poll_ for want of a better prefix).

For each database, there is a submodule. Have a look at these modules for more information.
