library for whois ??? - UNIX Programming

Hey folks, I'm writing a C++ application. I was wondering if there is a C++ library that allows me to make whois calls and store the results in a datastructure of some kind. I know windows has these libraries, but not sure about the unixes or linuxes. Anyone know if this is possible and if so what library is used? Thanks a lot!...

    Anyone know if this is possible and if so what library is used?

    Thanks a lot!

    If you are working on Unix now, you can look up the function by using
    "grep".
    As I remember, there is a similar C function. You can call it in your C++
    application.

    Huh? Don't you mean "man"? Grep is used for searching for a string in a
    text file.
     

    I've never heard of such a function being a standard, or even common, part
    of Unix. You can use system() or popen() to run the "whois" shell command,
    but that's it.

    If there's a functional interface, it's in a third-party library.
