This crate provides asynchronous DNS lookups.
In asynchronous Rust code, it is necessary to resolve URL names using DNS. In most cases, this is done by calling
getaddrinfo on a blocking threadpool. However, since DNS is a UDP-based protocol, it doesn't make much sense to block on a thread when fully asynchronous options are available.
This crate provides a fully asynchronous alternative, based on the following mechanisms:
- On Windows, it uses the
DnsQueryExfunction, which allows for non-blocking DNS queries.
- On Unix, it uses a custom implementation of DNS provided by the
async-fsis used to read files and
async-iois used for the actual UDP packets.
It returns the list of addresses that it found to be associated with the given name.
