Hi all,

I just finished some work on the DNS library adding support for unauthenticated dynamic updates.
I'm including a patch that adds the support and a script dns-update that makes us of it.

The script attempt to add a record specified as an argument and returns a message if it was successful.
Any comments or feedback are always appreciated.

I get this error:

./nmap --datadir . --script=dns-update -d -sU -p53 --script-args 

./nselib/dns.lua:708: attempt to concatenate a nil value
stack traceback:
        ./nselib/dns.lua:708: in function <./nselib/dns.lua:704>
        (tail call): ?
        ./nselib/dns.lua:775: in function 'encode'
        ./nselib/dns.lua:1254: in function 'update'
        ./scripts/dns-update.nse:53: in function <./scripts/dns-update.nse:46>
        (tail call): ?

With "foo.bar.com" instead of "foo", the script finishes but doesn't
make any output.
