DNS Lookup

A BBEdit extension written in MacPerl to perform DNS lookups on the fly. If the current selection is a valid IP number, this extension will look up the host name corresponding to that number, and substitute all occurrences of the number in the current file by the hostname.

Not only is this extension almost completely useless to most people, but it has very extensive and extremely specific requirements. It will only run with BBEdit 4.0 or later (the full commercial version, not BBEdit Lite), it requires you to have MacPerl and the MacPerl BBEdit extension installed. It also needs AppleScript. And last but not least, you need an active Internet connection. If you have all these things, it might just work. If you don't, it certainly won't.

There's no documentation because if you need to ask how to install it, you shouldn't be using it. However, the source code is commented.

The major merit of this extension is that it shows off Matthias's amazingly neat MacPerl BBEdit extension, which allows you to write extensions for BBEdit in MacPerl, making it possible to create extensions that do complicated things simply and quickly. Its other major merit is that it does something I needed to do at the time. Freeware.
