tel, iwhois – look in phone book|
tel key ... |
Tel looks up key in a private telephone book, $home/lib/tel, and
in the public telephone book, /lib/tel. It uses grep (with the
–i option to ignore case differences), so the key may be any part
of a name or number. Customarily, the telephone book contains
names, userids, home numbers, and office numbers
of users. It also contains a directory of area codes and miscellaneous
people of general interest. |
Iwhois looks up names in the Internet NIC's personnel database.
Name should be a surname optionally followed by a comma and given
name. A different server can be chosen by appending to the name
an @ followed by the server's domain name.
/lib/areacodes Telephone area codes database.|
/lib/tel Public telephone number database.
$home/lib/tel Personal telephone number database.
