Re: WHOIS source?

Can someone point me to the source for a whois server... I
don't know
why, but I haven't been able to find any sources....

it seems to me that in the complete and utter absence of a
protocol, a sample implementation might something like:


well, yes...but that's a matchbook protocol if i ever saw one.  three
pages on "send a line to the server and it will send you stuff back".

besides...only internic's server seems to come close to implementing
the protocol as described there, which, incidentally, doesn't describe
the "forwarding" responses that rs.internic.net now feeds us.

i stand by my implementation.  by putting the appropriate data in the
database, the implementation i gave can do just about all of that.
