Telboek provides a command line interface (Perl) for the Dutch whitepages of the KPN. It fetches data from http://www.detelefoongids.nl/ and formats it nicely, so you don't have to open a browser to look up a phone number. It also allows you to search by phone number or zip code.

Release Notes: The program was updated to handles changes to the source Web site. The "--check" parameter will now tell you if there is a new version available.
Release Notes: "regiozoeken" wasn't functioning like it used to. This has been fixed, as well as some other HTML parsing related things. Caching wasn't working anymore due to the \xa0 codes used on the source site; this has been fixed. The code has been put through perltidy to make it somewhat more readable.
Release Notes: There are massive changes in the code due to changes in the site detelefoongids.nl. This release grabs your phone number listings again. The "columns" option has been added to the telboekrc configuration file.
Release Notes: The Website changed the form again, so an update was needed to make Telboek work again. A new URL was added. A new option has been added too, "--columns", which will specify the width of the first shown column. By default this width is set to 20 characters.
Release Notes: Win32 support has been added. Now Windows users can use this script using Activestate Perl. 'telboek_db' has been removed, because SQLite provides you with the command line tool 'sqlite', which is more suited for the job.
