NAME
       jwhois - client for the whois service

SYNOPSIS
       jwhois  [ OPTIONS ]...  [ QUERY ]

DESCRIPTION
       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 specified on the command
       line, or selected directly on the command line.


OPTIONS
       --version
              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 cache.

       -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 configuration.

       -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.

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

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


   RIPE EXTENSIONS
       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.
