I found out some more information. Apparently the nslookup Unix command
returns the following:
nslookup is deprecated and may be removed from future releases.
Consider using the `dig' or `host' programs instead. Run nslookup with
the `-sil[ent]' option to prevent this message from appearing.
188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa name = f1.www.vip.sp1.yahoo.com.
Authoritative answers can be found from:
36.131.209.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns5.yahoo.com.
36.131.209.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns7.yahoo.com.
36.131.209.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns1.yahoo.com.
36.131.209.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns2.yahoo.com.
36.131.209.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns3.yahoo.com.
ns1.yahoo.com internet address = 184.108.40.206
ns2.yahoo.com internet address = 220.127.116.11
ns3.yahoo.com internet address = 18.104.22.168
ns5.yahoo.com internet address = 22.214.171.124
ns7.yahoo.com internet address = 126.96.36.199
I guess that means that nslookup has been removed from her machine? Is that
what Revolution uses for hostNameToAddress()?
