I like dig(1) so I have it installed too. The host(1) command should still be available though, it's not part of BIND.scottro said:To get the originals, you can install bind-tools
hostis actually part of BIND and was also removed at the time, however in this case it was replaced with a new
hostcommand compiled out of /usr/src/contrib/ldns-host which is this: http://tx97.net/ldns-host/. It works mostly the same but I've noticed some small differences.
