MWHOIS.CONF(5)		       Debian GNU/Linux			MWHOIS.CONF(5)

NAME
       mwhois.conf - alternative WHOIS servers list for	mwhois client

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/mwhois.conf

DESCRIPTION
       This  file  contains a list of WHOIS servers which can augment or over-
       ride the	built-in list of the client.

       It's a plain text file in ASCII encoding. Each  line  consists  of  two
       fields:	a pattern to match WHOIS object	identifier and a corresponding
       WHOIS server domain name.

       Fields are separated by non-empty sequence of space or a	tabular	 char-
       acters.	 A  line  starting with	a hash character is a free comment and
       it's not	considered.

       The pattern is case-insensitive extended	regular	expression  if	mwhois
       client has been compiled	with POSIX regular expressions support.	Other-
       wise, simple case-insensitive suffix comparison	against	 WHOIS	object
       identifier is used.

       Internationalized domain	names (IDN) must be specified in ascii-compat-
       ible encoding (ACE) format.

EXAMPLE
