No idea, I can't read Perl, and you shouldn't assume that people will be

Can you simplify your problem to the smallest sub-task that you cannot 
perform? Focus on this part of the problem:

What Python code are you using to loop? Simplify the problem to focus on 
the fundamental problem, not the irrelevant details of looking up CNAME 
and A Records using dig.
