will give you nice one-line entry for each AS with its number, name and
description (don't forget to install ripe whois v3 client and change some
paths in script for it to work on your system)
There is however as you noted a problem with ARIN database as in many
places for old AS numbers as-name is "UNSPECIFIED" - for all new AS this
is required so its not as much of a problem. The script above deals with
that by assigning pseudo-name "ASnumber" for all unspecified names.
And unlike geektools, completewhois will do recursive lookup for as in
proper database (i.e. "whois -h completewhois.com as3320" in below case)
but it just outputs all the data as is and I think for what you wanted,
the pataroo script would work best.
