Issue #29 resolved

Whois Module

Drumm
created an issue

Find a cross-platform way to do a whois lookup. Many solutions wrap the *nix whois command instead of executing natively, so I am not sure for the best solution. The module could be used to pull contacts and hosts (from emails)

    From reading through the documentation, it looks like the tool started out as a wrapper for the unix whois command, but he ported it to the code that was requested. Might be worth pulling down and checking out.

    I'll have a play a little later. I did pull it down, It looks like the documentation is a little out of date.. need to investigate the files to work out the API.

    That library doesn't seem to have a great parsing engine. So it's not very useful for finding contacts. Shame there isn't something like this for python: http://www.ruby-whois.org/
