The HOST command is used to look up information in the host table about a
particular host name or host number.  This information includes the official
name of the host if the name is a nickname, all host numbers known for that
host, whether the host is a user or a server, the host machine and the host
operating system.

To use HOST, type HOST followed the host name (or any abbreviation) you want
to look for, or the host number, and return.  The program will print all
hosts (and nicknames) which match the input specification.  For example:

	.HOST SAIL		(describe host named "SAIL")
	.HOST	(describe Internet host
	.HOST 44#302		(describe SU Ethernet host 44#302)

Please do not use this command if you are not at a local terminal.  The
official source of host information on the Internet is at SRI-NIC.ARPA, and
in the domain databases distributed around the network.
