Includes automatic sanity checking and responses that are automatically decoded into a natural C representation. Very easy to use for simple programs that just want to look up MX records or translate names to addresses. Time-to-live, CNAME, and similar information are returned in an easy to use manner, and you can launch many queries at once and deal with the replies asynchronously. The program reports errors in a way that distinguishes the cause of failure.
