Cygwin/Windows Gurus Needed

[ #16112 ]

There is some hazy areas in Net::DNS. Neither I nor the original author have access to a windows machine, and there are some questions that we need to get answered. See this RT ticket for the background.

Basically, the questions are:

  • Does IO::Select work correctly on windows (and cygwin for that matter, though it appears that it does)?
  • Does using UPD for sending and receiving DNS packets work properly on windows? I'm rather sure it should.
  • Does IO::Socket::INET's Timeout parameter work correctly on windows?

Net::DNS is used behind the scenes in several popular perl applications (SpamAssassin comes to mind). Net::DNS needs to run better on windows, and I can't do that without people's help. So if you know the answers to those questions, or you have the means to find out, please contact me.
