whois -h whois.6bone.net -- "-v person" works for me, on both FreeBSD and Linux whois. -v is not really a whois option at all; it's a remote server flag. I assume there are others, and the above syntax is the only way to pass all possible flags (Linux's syntax only works with flags that the whois binary itself doesn't use). -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
