I went through the available documentation and I have to say that I did 
not advance... is there a list of classes and methods available somewhere?

Otherwise, I guess I could advance if I could have some examplecode 
which does only 1 thing:

in my python program I have a variable myhost = ''

Now, I would be perfectly happy if I launch my python program, and if 
the following would work:

dig myhost @

thanks in advance,
