[Pdns-users] Configure PowerDNS recursor as NON RECURSIVE

Hi all,

I am new to PowerDNS. I have downloaded the new PowerDNS recursor 3.3 tar
file from their website. I am debugging the code to understand how it works.
I can see that there are two config files being referred in the code.
"recursor.conf" in pdns_recursor.cc and "pdns.conf" in rec_control.cc. 

I want to be able to config the PowerDNS recursor in Non Recursive mode. I
know there are following parameters from whatever I read online, which let
me do that. 1. allow-recursion, 2. allow-recursion-override, 3. recursor ...
but I get an error when I put these parameters in recursor.conf that its not
Also I am not sure what goes into the pdns.conf. 

I have not configured the backend database to anything. I just want to look
at the flow of the functions being called when it is run in recursive mode
as well as in non-recursive mode.

Could anyone explain me how exactly am I supposed to configure the PowerDNS
to be able to achieve above? 

I have been trying this since long time but not yet succeeded. I look
forward for the help.
