This document is http://alumni.caltech.edu/~dank/uwho/uwho.html uwho (pronounced "you-who") is another people-finding front end program that was created by yours truly, Daniel Kegel (email@example.com), because whois seemed difficult to use- you had to know what the hostname of the whois server was, which is a detail that users shouldn't have to know. uwho is a front end to several white pages services (currently, whois, ph, and KIS). It accepts a name and partial organization name, does a search for matching organizations, runs whois, ph, or KIS queries (as appropriate) in parallel, then shows the user the results. It is powerful simply because it accesses a continually updated list of white pages servers [i.e., it searches current information, not its "own list of users"], so its power will grow as more [user-information] servers come online. Uwho is written in C and runs under Unix, VMS, NT, and MS-DOS. For more information, consult uwho.doc. The latest version is uwho218b.tar.Z or uwho218b.zip. Some people wrote to say how to use Uwho with Linux. uwho2html, a trivial WWW front end to uwho, is also available. For more information on ph, read the ph FAQ.
