     I wrote this application because I always wanted my Windows machine to be able to run a Whois query very easily, like a Linux machine can. With this app, you can place it in your Windows directory, and at any time, type 'Whois' on the command line, and receive a Whois report, with no hassle. Uses a CSocket derived class for data connection. Demonstrates how to use Archives with Sockets to perform data communication between 2 remote machines. Please do not hesitate to give feedback! I always love to read it :)* Update August 30: I have changed the way the app stores cached Queries. Instead of limiting saved queries to a certain number, when the limit is reached, it pushes the last one in the list out, and replaces it with the new Query*

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
