       tel, iwhois - look in phone book

       tel key ...
       iwhois name[@domain]

       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.
