Hesiod is a system which uses existing DNS functionality to provide access
to databases of information that changes infrequently.  It is often used to
distribute information kept in the /etc/passwd, /etc/group, and /etc/printcap
files, among others.  The hesinfo package contains the hesinfo client program,
which can be used to query Hesiod.
