 nisls(1)                                                           nisls(1)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      nisls - list the contents of an NIS+ directory

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      nisls [ -dglLmMR ] [ name...  ]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      For each name that is an NIS+ directory, nisls lists the contents of
      the directory.  For each name that is an NIS+ object other than a
      directory, nisls simply echos the name.  If no name is specified, the
      first directory in the search path (see nisdefaults(1)) is listed.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      -d   Treat NIS+ directories like other NIS+ objects, rather than
           listing their contents.

      -g   Display group owner instead of owner when listing in long format.

      -l   List in long format.  This option displays additional information
           about the objects such as their type, creation time, owner, and
           access rights.

           The access rights are listed in the following order in long mode:
           nobody, owner, group owner, and world.

      -L   This option specifies that links are to be followed. If name
           actually points to a link, it is followed to the linked object.

      -m   Display modification time instead of creation time when listing
           in long format.

      -M   Master only. This specifies that information is to be returned
           from the master server of the named object.  This guarantees that
           the most up-to-date information is seen at the possible expense
           that the master server may be busy.

      -R   List directories recursively.  This option will reiterate the
           list for each subdirectory found in the process of listing each

    Environment Variables
      NIS_PATH       If this variable is set and the NIS+ name is not fully
                     qualified, each directory specified will be searched
                     until the object is found (see nisdefaults(1)).

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      nisls returns 0 on success and 1 on failure.
