This is a new whois (RFC 954) client rewritten from scratch by me. It is derived from and compatible with the usual BSD and RIPE whois (1) programs. It is intelligent because it automatically selects the right whois server for most queries. It knows about TLDs, NIC handles, IPv4 and IPv6 allocations, AS numbers. It supports the command line syntax of the RIPE client.
