  Description     : non-blocking system DNS resolver

Net::Dns::Native provides several methods for host name resolution.
It is designed to be used with event loops. All resolving are done by
getaddrinfo(3) implemented in your system library. Since getaddrinfo()
is blocking function and this class doesn't want to block, calls to
this function will be done in separate thread. This class uses system
native threads and not perl threads. So overhead shouldn't be too big.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.
