    Vendor/Author: Andrew Cherenson
    Status: Unknown/Active (The Manual page was last updated in 2014)
    Description: Query Internet name servers interactively.

    From the MAN page:
    Nslookup is a program to query Internet domain name servers. Nslookup has two modes: interactive and non-interactive. Interactive mode allows the user to query name servers for information about various hosts and domains or to print a list of hosts in a domain.
    Non-interactive mode is used to print just the name and requested information for a host or domain.
    Even though the nsllookup command exists in most operating systems, it is actually not the same command and capabilities may vary. The tool has the capability to attempt Zone Transfers, AXFR queries and other common dns queries.
