Most likely this is more a case of ARIN refusing to maintain a decent UI on command-line whois and focusing all their efforts on the RESTful interface on the web server…

Here’s what I get from that:

Net Range	45.192.0.0 - 45.222.255.255
CIDR	45.192.0.0/12

It would be nice if ARIN would fix the command line whois server, but so far, my efforts to get them to do so have been fruitless.
