Subject: [9front] iwhois(1) patch
Date: Sat, 08 May 2021 16:48:09 +0200
Message-ID: <B0784B743716A7F0A8865B4652453F56@aleph0.pw> (raw)

It's impossible to get whois right and probably nobody cares about it,
nevertheless this small patch fixes some issues with the current version:

* use a more common filter for default boilerplate (useful when
  following the referral chain)
* updated boilerplate for *.co.uk *.net.uk *.org.uk
* added case *.com *.net (got it from iana.org)
* use ARIN for IPv6 addresses
* when unsure, check first whether whois.nic.$tld exists otherwise
  usual fallback to InterNIC
* fixed regexp for the referral chain (case, extra spaces or /)
