Subject: Problem with parsing DS records in Net::DNS::ZoneFile::Fast
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 987b
We use Net::DNS::ZoneFile::Fast in a perl program which generates zone files, we recently started accepting DS records from our members, our program writes entries for DS records like this: DS 11790 5 1 9c5bf337879c7ee4c6c4ff893ff14e231e6aca6a Notice this is missing the IN class. When our program uses Net::DNS::ZoneFile::Fast to parse this it reports an error: ERROR: read_zonefile: caught die from zonefile loading: /export/zupd/data/out/zones/RIPE/ unrecognized type, line 55907 ...propagated at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Net/DNS/ZoneFile/ line 137, <GEN368> line 55907. If the class is states IE IN DS 11790 5 1 9c5bf337879c7ee4c6c4ff893ff14e231e6aca6a Then the error is not reported. As far as I know if class is not stated IN should be assumed. So not a critical issue but an issue that maybe needs addressing. We are running perl 5.80 and Linux 2.4 Kernel

Tracking down a very old bug (arg): actually, it's not the missing IN that's the problem. It's the missing TTL value.
Fixed in the next release by adjusting the TTL check
