whois is an open source and intelligent command-line software written from scratch in the Perl programming language and designed to allow users to query domain names and IP addresses directly from the Linux Terminal.

whois has been initially written in 1999 as an intelligent whois client for Linux operating systems. Since then, many features were added, such as support for all protocol extensions, including RIPE, CRSNIC and 6bone, as well as support for the IPv6 protocol.

The software is capable of automagically selecting the right whois server for most queries, can query the right registry for many domains and netblocks, and includes an up-to-date database.
