(synopsis "Improved whois client")
(description "This whois client is intelligent and can
automatically select the appropriate whois server for most queries.
Because of historical reasons this also includes a tool called mkpasswd
which can be used to encrypt a password with @code{crypt(3)}.")
(synopsis "Intelligent client for the WHOIS directory service")
(description
"whois searches for an object in a @dfn{WHOIS} (RFC 3912) database.
It is commonly used to look up the registered users or assignees of an Internet
resource, such as a domain name, an IP address block, or an autonomous system.
It can automatically select the appropriate server for most queries.

For historical reasons, this package also includes @command{mkpasswd}, which
encrypts passwords using @code{crypt(3)} and is unrelated to the Expect command
of the same name.")
