Both.  Here, that is.  The first generated AorAAAA, the latter
were "system alias" names (not even cname or something) which were
search in preference unless the query gave a conf_noaliases flag.
And the reading was just readLine().  And one thing why i loved
C++, writing something like "_line.trim().squeeze().data()" in
C is terrible.
