How to do an nslookup from VFP 6

How to do an nslookup from VFP 6

How to do an nslookup from VFP 6

(OP)
Is there a more elegant way to do an nslookup from within VFP than:

! nslookup &address > ns.txt
 then parsing the ns.txt file for the name using low level file functions?

THX.

RE: How to do an nslookup from VFP 6

Windows scripting provides for this:

CODE

loShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
loScriptExec = loShell.Exec("nslookup 192.168.1.149")
lcNsLookup = loScriptExec.StdOut.ReadAll()
?lcNsLookup

Where might I find a Windows scripting reference? I'm thinking I might use something other than ReadAll() to get only the server name??

Thanks again
