gwhois - generic whois client / server
gwhois is a generic whois client. It strives to know for all existing tlds and
all ip address ranges the appropiate whois server to ask. You can simply call
gwhois with a query for some domain or some ip and it will ask the right
server for you! It can even query webforms which are unfortunately the only
query type supported by many bad registries.
gwhois can also be used as a whois server. You can call it from
the inetd and make it accessable via a normal standard whois client. This
allows for example using a windows client and still make use of the enhanced
features of gwhois.
- The pattern file of gwhois. Contains the list of domain and ip to server
mappings. It is in a machine readable regexp format but should be easy to
understand by humans, too. If you have additions and corrections please
report them always to the authors!
- File created depending on debconf question sending mail. Please do not
change manually but instead use dpkg-reconfigure!
