How to do dns by hand?

I'm currently finding the ip adress (and finding hosts through reverse dns) through another program.

The problem with the former is that sometimes it doesn't quit properly, which leads to exess proesses, which leads to it crashing my comp every so often.

So, i was wondering how to do dns by myself? ie. with winsock?

The better way is to build a program that call several thead that call external program to retrieve dns infos.
And every hours, this program run an other external program to clean all these process.

You have some old dos program that kill again windows process (98,2000,xp).
Me, I use Kill.exe

Search it in torrents.
