This basic example shows how to create a context and resolve a host address (DNS record of A type).
#!/usr/bin/python import unbound ctx = unbound.ub_ctx() ctx.resolvconf("/etc/resolv.conf") status, result = ctx.resolve("www.google.com") if status == 0 and result.havedata: print "Result.data:", result.data.address_list elif status != 0: print "Resolve error:", unbound.ub_strerror(status)
In contrast with C API, the source code is more compact while the performance of C implementation is preserved. The main advantage is that you need not take care about the deallocation and allocation of context and result structures; pyUnbound module do it automatically for you.
If only domain name is given, the unbound.ub_ctx.resolve() looks for A records in IN class.
