       jwhois - client for the whois service

       jwhois  [ OPTIONS ]...  [ QUERY ]

       jwhois searches Whois servers for the object on the command line.

       The  host  to query is taken from a global configuration file, a configuration file speci-
       fied on the command line, or selected directly on the command line.

	      display version, authors and licensing information.

       --help display a short help text.

       -c FILE --config=FILE
	      uses FILE as a configuration file instead of the default.

       -h HOST --host=HOST
	      overrides any hosts in the configuration file and queries HOST directly.

       -p PORT --port=PORT
	      specifies a port number to use when querying a HOST.

       -f --force-lookup
	      forces a query to be made to a host even if a current object is available from  the

       -v --verbose
	      outputs  verbose	debugging  information	while  running (use this before sending a
	      bugreport to ensure that it's indeed a bug and not  a  misconfiguration).  You  can
	      increase the verbosity by giving several verbose commands to jwhois, such as -vv.

       -n --no-redirect
	      disable features that redirect queries from one server to another.

       -s --no-whoisservers
	      disable the built-in support for whois-servers.net.

       -a --raw
	      send  query  verbatim to receiving hosts instead of rewriting them according to the

       -i --display-redirections
	      display every step in a redirection (default is to display only the last answer).

       -d --disable-cache
	      completely disable both reading and writing to cache.

       -r --rwhois
	      force the query to use the rwhois protocoll instead of HTTP or whois.

	      asks receiving rwhois servers to display the results in the DISPLAY display instead
	      of the default dump display.

	      asks receiving rwhois servers to limit their responses to LIMIT matches.

       To  use	the  options specified in RIPE Document 157, you need to change the format of the
       query slightly.	If you were to search for all entries in the RIPE  database  which  lists
       the admin-c, tech-c or zone-c as CO19-RIPE, you could use the following command syntax:

       jwhois -h whois.ripe.net -- -i admin-c,tech-c,zone-c CO19-RIPE

       -- is used to separate the RIPE options from the jwhois options.
