NAME [Toc] [Back]
ypcat - print all values in Network Information Service map
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
ypcat [-k] [-t] [-d domain] mname
Remarks [Toc] [Back]
The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Yellow
Pages (YP). The functionality of the two remains the same; only the
name has changed.
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
ypcat prints all values in a Network Information Service (NIS) map
specified by mname, which can be either a mapname or a map nickname.
A map nickname is a synonym by which a NIS map can be referenced.
Values are listed, one per line.
Options [Toc] [Back]
ypcat recognizes the following options:
-k Print the associated key preceding each value. This
option is useful for examining maps in which the values
are null or the keys are not part of the value, such as
the ypservers map. The maps derived from files that have
an ASCII version in /etc (such as passwd and hosts) are
not in this category.
-t Inhibit the translation of a map's nickname to its
corresponding mapname. For example, ypcat -t passwd
fails because there is no map named passwd, whereas ypcat
passwd translates to ypcat passwd.byname.
-d Specify a domain other than the one returned by
domainname (see domainname(1)).
-x Display the table that lists the nickname for each NIS
EXAMPLES [Toc] [Back]
Display the network-wide password database whose mapname is
passwd.byname and nickname is passwd :
