CWHOIS - whois client
cwhois [-a|-F|-L|-m|-M|-r|-S|-R] [-h hostname] [-s source[[,source]...]] [-T type[[,type]...]] [-i attr[[,attr]...]] keys cwhois [-t type] cwhois [-v type]
cwhois Simple whois client that gives you back output, compatiable with RIPE DB v2, if you'll ask it to.
-a search all databases -F fast raw output -L find all Less specific matches -m find first level more specific matches -M find all More specific matches -r turn off recursive lookups -S tell server to leave out 'syntactic sugar' -R force to show local copy of the domain object even if it contains referral -h hostname search alternate server -s source[[,source]...] search databases with source 'source' -T type[[,type]...] only look for objects of type 'type' -i attr[[,attr]...] do an inverse lookup for specified attributes -t type requests template for object of type 'type' -v type requests verbose template for object of type 'type'
Please note that most of these flags are NOT understood by non RIPE whois servers!
