RULI - Resolver User Layer Interface

RULI stands for Resolver User Layer Interface. It's a library built on
top of an asynchronous DNS stub resolver. RULI provides an easy-to-use
interface for querying DNS SRV resource records. The goal is to
promote wide deployment of SRV-cognizant software. RULI aims to fully
support SRV-related standards. There are bindings for PHP, Perl,
Guile/Scheme, Java, and Lua. IPv6 is supported.
