that's neat, but it's not terribly useful with more than a handful of
zones.  internic now terminates all whois queries at 50 records.
otoh, the telnet interface will show you five and then offer you all
the others.  so...

telnet whois.internic.net
whois my.name.server
server nic-handleformyserver
