Whois Tip

alias whois='whois -H'
Put that in your .bashrc (or equivalent) and get rid of the legal disclaimers which usually mean that you have to scroll up two pages to get the actual results! I should have looked at the whois man page ages ago.


That's only true of GNU whois. whois in the BSD world doesn't support it.

I would say get a proper OS, but I'm beginning to enjoy FreeBSD. Is it possible to install the GNU Whois client on BSD?
