1.1     ! reed        1: The libbsdnet suite provides functions and documentation for communicating
        !             2: with domain name servers, retrieving network host entries from
        !             3: /etc/hosts or via DNS, converting CIDR network addresses, performing
        !             4: Hesiod information lookups, retrieving network entries from
        !             5: /etc/networks, implementing TSIG transaction/request security of
        !             6: DNS messages, performing name-to-address and address-to-name
        !             7: translations, and utilizing /etc/resolv.conf for resolver configuration.
        !             8: 
        !             9: Historically, much of the code is derived from the CSRG BSD distributions, such
        !            10: as the old BSD gethostbyname() standard API.  It was previously also maintained by ISC and distributed with BIND
        !            11: and libbind.  The handoff of the maintainership from ISC to NetBSD happened in July 2013.
        !            12: 
        !            13: Bug fixes and development discussion for this code can be discussed on the tech-userlevel mailing list.
        !            14: 
        !            15: Patches of NetBSD (June 2013 head) against libbind-6.0 are available at:
        !            16: <http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/reed/libbsdnet/>
        !            17: 
        !            18: libbind provides portability headers: port_before.h and  port_after.h
        !            19: 
        !            20: ### port
        !            21: port directory provides portability headers for many operating sytems
        !            22: make directory provides common Makefile rules and mkdep
        !            23: 
        !            24: ### bsd
        !            25: bsd directory contains compatibility code, such as:
        !            26: daemon(), \_\_ftruncate(), isc\_\_gettimeofday(), gettimeofday(),
        !            27: mkstemp(), mktemp(), gettemp(), putenv(), \_\_readv(), setenv(),

        !            35: The dst code is not included in NetBSD's src. Probably the code in src/lib/libc using it actually is
        !            36: not used.
        !            37:
