Linux whois command
Is there a good console command for linux to do a whois on an address and if yes what is it?

Uh, huh huh, I'm not saying anything.
Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

You answered you're own question maybe whois isnt in you're path ? if not it should be /usr/bin/whois and do a man whois to learn how to use it like to connect to diffrent whois networks etc

This is what you looking for here and as stated above whois is located at /usr/bin/whois
Usage: whois [OPTION...] query[@server[ort]]
-h server server name
-p port server port
-t timeout query time limit
-r force recursion
-n disable recursion
-v verbose mode
-- treat remaining arguments as part of the query
default server is whois.crsnic.net
