Versions of Bind

Both of these worked with my copy of 8.2.2-p5 nslookup.

$ ./nslookup -type=txt -class=chaos version.bind.
$ ./nslookup -querytype=txt -class=chaos version.bind.

Greetings all,

	Does anyone know how to remotely check different versions of BIND
without having to login to the nameserver.  I tried this, and nslookup
returned unknown query class.

nslookup -q=txt -class=CH version.bind.

I am running BIND 8.2.2-p5.
