NetParseWhois

nop has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi -- I can get whois info for Yahoo here

http://www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois?STRING=yahoo.com&SearchType=do,

but Net::ParseWhois can't find it:
use Net::ParseWhois; use Data::Dumper; my $w = Net::ParseWhois::Domain->new('yahoo.com'); die unless $w; die unless $w->ok; print "Domain: ", $w->domain, "\n"; print "Name: ", $w->name, "\n"; print "Tag: ", $w->tag, "\n"; print "Address:\n", map { " $_\n" } $w->address; print "Country: ", $w->country, "\n";
Which on my machine generates
Domain: n/a Name: n/a Tag: n/a Address: n/a Country: n/a
What's going on here? Is there a way to point the module at a more comprehensive whois server? Thanks

    nop,
    Just from peaking in the source code:
    sub TLDs { { COM => 'whois.nsiregistry.com', NET => 'whois.nsiregistry.com', ORG => 'whois.nsiregistry.com' } }
    You could try changing one of these. There is another possibility. According to the docs on CPAN, there is only a finite list of registrars that are supported. Depending on which registrar is returning the value, it may just not know how to parse it.

    Cheers - L~R
