Re: whois for just prefix list
The RIPE server uses a different syntax. The query language was not part of the RPSL specification and so different servers chose different paths inthis regard.
With the server you want to say
whois -h whois.ripe.net -k -iorigin AS3130
Another option is to use peval, which is lightweight, quick, knows about the different server syntaxes *and* expands macros recursively and correctly, which most server implementations do not.
