TEL(1)					       General Commands Manual					       TEL(1)

NAME
tel, iwhois - look in phone book
SYNOPSIS
tel key ... iwhois name[@domain]
DESCRIPTION
Tel looks up key in a private telephone book, $home/lib/tel, and in the public telephone book, /lib/tel. It uses grep (with the -i option to ignore case differences), so the key may be any part of a name or number. Customarily, the telephone book contains names, userids, home numbers, and office numbers of users. It also contains a directory of area codes and miscellaneous people of general interest. Iwhois looks up names in the Internet NIC's personnel database. Name should be a surname optionally followed by a comma and given name. A different server can be chosen by appending to the name an @ followed by the server's domain name.
FILES
