if you want to do dns lookups on a large number of hosts, then try

If this is an excercise in just trying to do a straight port of your
program, and you're not interested in doing it in a nicer fashion, then
I would see the simple response from Carl Banks, however, you should
really have posted the python code you're trying instead!
