In 1999 I wrote this Whois client from scratch because the alternatives were obsolete or bloated.

This client is intelligent and can automatically select the appropriate whois server for most queries.

The internal database is often more accurate than IANA's published one, but please send me any information you have regarding domains and network resources which are not correctly handled by the program.

Because of historical reasons this package also contains the mkpasswd program, which can be used to encrypt a password with crypt(3).

The canonical distribution point for releases of the program is http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/whois/ .
