What do you mean by "an example"? Do you mean you want a copy of the
script? I don't have it, as I no longer work there. I didn't write
this particular script, so I can't easily recreate it. And it was
heavily dependent on the Informix database that we used to build our DNS
configurations.

We didn't touch the whois servers, we queried DNS to get delegation
records.
