tel, iwhois - look in phone book
tel key ...
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.
Public telephone number database.
