HostResolve: a host name resolution program

  • Write a program that resolves the names of a host to its associated IP address(es).
  • By default, the program resolves the name of a host provided as a command line argument to a single address.
  • The program must also permit one option, '-a', which directs the program to find all addresses associated with the host name.
  • Use the InetAddress.getByName() method to find the default address.
  • Use the InetAddress.getAllByName() method to find all addresses for that host name.
Usage: o java HostResolve [-a] [host name]
  • The program must write the IP address(es) to standard output.
