"world -- top level domain code mappings"

Project description

This script takes a list of Internet top-level domain names and prints out where in the world those domains originate from. For example:

$ world tz us
tz originates from Tanzania, United Republic of
us originates from United States of America (the)

Reverse look ups are also supported:

$ world -r united
Matches for "united":
  ae: United Arab Emirates (the)
  gb: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the)
  tz: Tanzania, United Republic of
  uk: United Kingdom (common practice)
  um: United States Minor Outlying Islands (the)
  us: United States of America (the)

Only two-letter country codes are supported, since these are the only ones that were freely available from the ISO 3166 standard. However, as of 2015-01-09, even these are no longer freely available in a machine readable format.

This script also knows about non-geographic, generic, USA-centric, historical, common usage, and reserved top-level domains.
