Net::Whois::Parser - module for parsing whois information

SYNOPSIS

        somefield1 => 'value',
        somefield2 => [ 'value', 'value2' ],
        ...
    };
    
    # Your own parsers

                { domain => 'ns.example.com' },
            ],
            emails => [ 'admin@example.com' ],

    $Net::Whois::Parser::PARSERS{'DEFAULT'}           = \&my_default_parser;

    # If you want to get all values of fields from all whois answers
    $Net::Whois::Parser::GET_ALL_VALUES = 1;
        # example
        # Net::Whois::Raw returns 2 answers
        $raw = [ { text => 'key: value1' }, { text => 'key: value2'}];
        $data = parse_whois(raw => $raw);
        # If flag is off parser returns
        # { key => 'value2' };
        # If flag is on parser returns
        # { key => [ 'value1', 'value2' ] };
    
    # If you want to convert some field name to another:
    $Net::Whois::Parser::FIELD_NAME_CONV{'Domain name'} = 'domain';

    # If you want to format some fields.
    # I think it is very useful for dates.
    $Net::Whois::Parser::HOOKS{'expiration_date'} = [ \&format_date ];
