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 -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.
