Not to dissuade you from what you're trying to accomplish, but
"nslookup" has been deprecated (this has been stated a few times by the
BIND folks), and "host" is probably on its way out as well (though I
remember somewhere, sometime, nslookup used to state "being deprecated,
use 'host' or 'dig' instead" -- or something like that).
Please learn to use the "dig" command. I realise it has a somewhat high
learning curve at first (syntax-wise it can be somewhat messy), but
ultimately it's an immensely powerful -- or simple! -- DNS tool.
