pwho is a parallel whois tool for programs.
Version:pwho is a parallel whois tool for programs.
Operating System: Linux
Programs that need to do whois lookups to test availablity (because names can be registered that have no NS records) can interface with pwho.
The input is simple:
Where "name" is a query without spaces for "whoisserver", which MUST be an IPv4 address. input is line-separated.
The output is simple:
q 0 st
Where "q" is the input-line number in sequence-space, and "st" is one of:
permfail - name is not registered
remotefail - temporary error; (try again later?)
ok - name IS registere
What's New in This Release:
· pwho.c: poll now waits- this causes kernel blocks but at least keeps load down
