Description Pekka Savola 2003-12-23 19:10:16 UTC
resolver(5) aka resolv.conf(5) is extremely badly out of date.  The resolver
code has been updated from Bind a number of times, but this particular piece
of documentation has not been synced in a while.

See:
 resolver(3)
 src/contrib/bind/doc/man/resolver.5 (this is missing some stuff too, though)
 http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/share/man/man5/resolv.conf.5

In particular, the most important missing options are:
 - edns0 
 - insecure1
 - insecure2

Fix: 

Sync up the descriptions, and add insecure1/insecure2/edns0.

(I would have made the patch, but I don't know what's the copyright policy
because the boilerplates with local and bind's resolver.5 don't match...)
How-To-Repeat: man 3 resolver
man 5 resolver
less /usr/src/lib/libc/net/res_init.c
nroff -mandoc /usr/src/contrib/bind/doc/man/resolver.5 | less
