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
File created depending on debconf question sending mail. Please
do not change manually but instead use dpkg-reconfigure!
