The Dynamic DNS Update Protocol assumes that the devices/applications
performing dynamic registration of the DNS records will delete the
records from the DNS database when the records become invalid. Initial
deployment of the devices supporting the Dynamic DNS Update protocol
indicated that there are multiple legitimate scenarios when records
dynamically registered in DNS are not removed from the database by the
devices that originally registered them. This can result in a
substantial number of stale records. This document describes a
mechanism to clean up these stale records.

MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
