world – Print mappings between country names and DNS country codes

This package provides a mapping between top-level domain names and their two letter ISO 3166 country codes. This script also knows about non-geographic, generic, USA-centric, historical, common usage, and reserved top-level domains.

Both a command line script called world and a library called worldlib are available. The latter can be imported into your Python code for whatever application you want.


The command line script world requires Python 3, but the worldlib library is compatible with both Python 2.7 and Python 3.


A simple guide to using the library is available within this package. The manual is also available online. A manpage provides information on how to use the world command line script.
