I've found that not all whois clients pass all the options onto the
whois server.  Additionally, you may not want to rely on another client
from
within a script...especially if you're trying to straighten out your
SWIPs for that last /14 assigned to you.

One option would be to connect to the server's whois TCP port 43 and
send your commands.  You can use the "DOmain" keyword to search only the
domain record type when there's a possibility of the domain being a host
as well.

Example:

telnet whois.internic.net 43
dump do yahoo.com
