Missing drill binary

Briefly describe your issue below:
Hi everyone, I’m quite new to linux so sorry if I’m missing something obvious.
Basicly, I downloaded a software dealing with dns settings and stuff. However I can’t launch it because he can’t find ‘drill’ (the error is a simple ‘bash: drill: command not found’ or something like that). Here is what he is refering to : https://linux.die.net/man/1/drill .
So apparently parrotsec doesn’t have this option. Is this normal and is there anyway to fix it?

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
Parrot Security Edition 4.5
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Standard I guess :thinking:
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Hi, the drill command is provided by ‘ldnsutils’.

So to install this packages use

sudo apt install ldnsutils

Thank you for your help :slightly_smiling_face: If I run into this kind of problem again where can I find what to install?

You can search the contents of packages or just for packages themselves using debians website.

Can look through apt repo straight from terminal with apt search (insert search term/s)
