Interface:

A new whois (RFC 954) client rewritten from scratch. It is derived from and compatible with the usual BSD and RIPE whois(1) programs. It is intelligent and can automatically select the appropriate whois server for most queries.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

WHOIS client v. 4.7.30 (17/1/2009, Ian Manners) Readme/What's new
This is whois v4.7.30 for OS/2. Compiled with gcc-3.3.5csd3 for OS/2 so you will need the GCC runtime lib(s) in your DPATH somewere. Most people will already have the latest GCC runtime installed. If you want to compile whois yourself. ====================================== Whois compiles with only minimal changes, ie edit makefile and uncomment the lines #whois_LDADD += -lsocket #LDFLAGS += -Zexe -Dstrncasecmp=strnicmp under 'OS/2 EMX'. config.diff provided by Steven Levine for turning on NLS support and long option support. Using Whois =========== The only file you need to use whois is the exe file in your path somewere. If you want to use a different or new whois server than the ones compiled in the executable, you will also require whois.conf in which you can add any additional whois server information. Why have I compiled a new version ? The older OS/2 version was baffing on IP ranges which have since been released from the bogon list. Primarily addition ranges have been released to Asia and Australia. Cheers Ian Manners http://www.os2site.com/ =-=-=-=
