This module provides an abstracted interface to the esmith hosts database. Unless otherwise noted, esmith::HostsDB acts like esmith::DB::db.
Like esmith::DB→open, but if given no $file it will try to open the file in the ESMITH_HOSTS_DB environment variable or hosts.
Like esmith::DB→open_ro, but if given no $file it will try to open the file in the ESMITH_HOSTS_DB environment variable or hosts.
These methods are added be esmith::HostsDB
my @hosts = $hosts->hosts;
Returns a list of all host records in the database.
my @new_hosts = $hosts->propogate_hosts($old_name, $new_name);
When the name of your e-smith machine changes, this will change the name of any hosts which also started with $old_name to use the $new_name.
Returns a list of the newly tranlsated host records.
Given a domain name (as a string), finds any hosts which match it and return them as a list of record objects.
