What it does

pares a DNS zonefile and returns a object with an array of records and the ttl. SOA parsing does not yet work

Usage

var zonefile = require('zonefile')
var zonedata = '@ IN A 127.0.0.1' // can be a line or a whole zonefile
var zone = zonefile.parseZone(zonedata)

{ 
records: 
   [ { name: '@', type: 'NS', data: 'ns.domain.com.', priority: null },
     { name: '@', type: 'NS', data: 'ns2.domain.com.', priority: null },
     { name: '@', type: 'NS', data: 'ns3.domain.com.', priority: null },
     { name: '@', type: 'A', data: '127.0.0.1', priority: null },
     { name: 'www', type: 'A', data: '127.0.0.1', priority: null },
     { name: 'cloud',
       type: 'CNAME',
       data: 'test.domain.com.',
       priority: null },
     { name: 'files', type: 'CNAME', data: 'www', priority: null },
     { name: '@', type: 'MX', data: 'www', priority: 10 },
     { name: '@', type: 'TXT', data: 'somevalue', priority: null } ],
ttl: 86400
}    

// other methods

var record = zonefile.paresLine(zonedata)

    {
    name:'@',
    type:'A',
    ttl:null,
    data:'127.0.0.1',
    priority:priority // only set if its an MX record    
    }
