    55Hesiod is a simple string lookup service built on top of the Domain Name System.  Conceptually, the service translates a pair of strings (the "name" and "type") into a set of result strings.  This lookup is done very simply; a DNS lookup is done for name.type.ns.athena.mit.edu and the strings in the resulting TXT records are returned. 
     
    1616Hesiod may, in some cases, be used to select a default printer for a specific workstation.  This information is ignored in the public cluster environment.
