Arguments: name &rest rest
This function calls
dns-query passing a
type value of
This is the functional equivalent of
if you ignore the extra values returned. It has one additional
feature, which is that if the query on name
doesn't return any IP addresses, and if name
doesn't contain any periods (that is, it's not a fully
qualified domain name), then we try
appending the values in
*domain-search-list* to the name and redoing the
query. Because the query can be done once for the given name and
once for each name
in the *domain-search-list*, this
function can take longer to return than
when nameservers aren't responsive.
