perl and adns

dino has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Has anyone written code to allow perl to use the adns library.
perhaps a patch to NET::DNS or something. I'm processing vast
apache logfiles and need to do very fast namelookup. sadly jdresolve is too
slow and dns-terror uses too much ram when the db size gets too big.
suggestions please

    There's an incomplete attempt at a perl adns interface here.

    You might just get the milage you need out of the adnslogres utility that comes with adns though. You could just pre-process the host name resolution before your perl script parses the logs. (Supposing you wanted to do more than just resolve the hostnames).
