ypmatch - print key values in NIS map
ypmatch [ -d domain ] [ -k ] [ -t ] key ... mname
ypmatch prints the values associated with one or more keys from the
network information service (NIS) map (database) specified by a mname,
which may be either a mapname or an map nickname.
Multiple keys can be specified; the same map will be searched for all.
The keys must be exact values insofar as capitalization and length are
concerned. No pattern matching is available. If a key is not matched, a
diagnostic message is produced.
-d Specify a domain other that the default domain. The NIS server for
the specified domain must be able to receive broadcasts from your
machine (i.e., the server must be on the same (sub)network).
-k Before printing the value corresponding to a key, print the key
itself, followed by a colon (`:'). This is useful only if the keys
are not duplicated in the values, or you've specified so many keys
that the output could be confusing.
-t Inhibit translation of nickname to mapname. For example,
ypmatch -t zippy passwd
will fail because there is no map named passwd, while
ypmatch zippy passwd
will succeed because it is equivalent to
ypmatch zippy passwd.byname
-x Display the map nickname table. This lists the nicknames (mnames)
the command knows of, and indicates the mapname associated with each
nickname. Use ypwhich -m to list all the map names.
