"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
Member "whois/README" (31 Mar 2013, 939 Bytes) of package /linux/privat/whois_5.5.9.tar.xz:
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 In 1999 I wrote this Whois client from scratch because the alternatives
2 were obsolete or bloated.
4 This client is intelligent and can automatically select the appropriate
5 whois server for most queries.
7 The internal database is often more accurate than IANA's published one,
8 but please send me any information you have regarding domains and network
9 resources which are not correctly handled by the program.
11 Because of historical reasons this package also contains the mkpasswd
12 program, which can be used to encrypt a password with crypt(3).
15 The canonical distribution point for releases of the program is
16 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/whois/ .
