What is bost?
A very simple "host" implementation by Avraham Lembke email@example.com It is not meant to be a full host replacement etc just translate hostname to a IP.
One good think on how its implemented is that it follows all the normal libc lookup's etc for your system so you can use it to test NSS or other configuration that changes your DNS lookups.
Where to get it or contact the author?

Note on ranges
By choice the ranges are limited to a maximum of /24
For a single host
$ bost host
For an IP address:
$ bost 10.0.0.1
$ bost 2001:6b0:17:f0a0::b3
For N hosts
$ bost host1 ... hostN
For a subnet/range
$ bost 192.168.0.0/24
$ bost 192.168.0.0/32
Its simple.. But there is currently no range support for IPv6 addresses.
current options are: -h, --help Show help -d, --double enable double check for example "bost -d foo" would output both the ip(s) of foo and the hostname(s) for the ip(s).
Just want to give big thanks to all people who have contacted me with bug reports and/or feedback.
