 ypcat(1)                                                           ypcat(1)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      ypcat - print all values in Network Information Service map

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      ypcat [-k] [-t] [-d domain] mname

      ypcat -x

    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 :

           ypcat passwd

      ypcat was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
