A utility that will validate and clean a text list of DNS
entries- very useful for managing blocklists. This program is freeware. You may use it and distribute it freely, but you are not permitted to sell it or use it comercially beyond its intended use. Please forward any comments/questions to email@example.com
This program will open a .txt file and parse through a list of DNS entries contained between --->START and --->END tags, validating them and then removing all entries that do not have a DNS record and saving them to the file c:\blocklist-purged.txt.
Ensure that any list you validate is in the format:
all entries that begin with a wildcard *.mysite.com will be read and checked as www.mysite.com.
All entries that end with a wildcard www.mysite.* or www.mysite* will be skipped and will not be checked.
Only entries between --->START and --->END tags are checked.
