Any workaround to build whois in Windows

Hi All!,

is there probably any workaround to build whois in Windows?
i’m running “mvn clean install”, and it stucks with generating Byaccs:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.codehaus.mojo:exec-maven-plugin:1.2.1:exec (default) on project whois-rpsl: Command execution failed.: Cannot run program “src\main\parser\bin\generateByaccs” (in directory “C:\Users\BCNC\Telefonica\Telco_router\whois_windows\whois\whois-rpsl”): CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified → [Help 1]

it seems reasonable, as the project has no Byaccs for Windows:

“case” operator:

case $OSTYPE in

but there is no file named “yacc” for the case “*)” in there:

Does it mean it’s not possible to build the project in pure Windows?
Need whatever flavour of Linux or there could be some workaround here?

Hi tchizhov.m,

Thanks for reaching out to us but we have a working environment setup on linux and macos and unfortunately we do not support windows.


Hi Mahesh,

ok, clear thank you.
