I am writing a program which can make DNS lookup requests through an
API. I need some open source software I can include which will run on Win
NT/Win 9x/UNIX (read: it runs over over winsock and berkeley sockets).

I found lots of programs to let you do look ups from a command line. Bu I
need an interface I can call from my program to retrieve svr and possibly
naptr records. Is my only hope to dig through bind (never touched it
before) and try to extract the code that does look ups?

Near as I can tell winsock doesn't support srv and naptr records, so I am
assuming I need to find alternative software.
