dt-getaddr — command-line test program for the val_getaddrinfo() function

Synopsis

dt-getaddr [options] <hostname|IPv4 address|IPv6 address>

Description

This utility is a command-line wrapper around the val_getaddrinfo() function. It invokes the val_getaddrinfo() operation for the given command-line arguments and displays the return code from the function and the contents of the addrinfo structure.

The exit status for this program is 1 if the answer received is trusted, 2 if the answer received is validated, and -1 for an error. If no validation is performed, or the result is neither trusted nor validated, a value of 0 is returned. The trusted and validated status values are obtained using the val_istrusted() and val_isvalidated() functions from libval(3).
