Thanks for the reply podmaster
So now I am baffled. This does indeed work:
perl -le'print `whois friendsofjabu.com`'
So what am I doing wrong here? Why does this get only the abbreviated output?
use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser /;
use CGI qw/:standard/;
use CGI::Pretty qw/ :html3 /;
my $dom = "friendsofjabu.com";
my $q = CGI->new();
print $q->header,start_html, '<pre>';
print my $output = `whois $dom` . '</pre>';
BTW when I use this code to lookup a domain which is NOT in the redemption period, I have just found that it works fine.
