NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkalias - a YP map conversion program

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkalias [-v] [-e] [-E] [-d] [-u] [-n] input [output]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkalias  is  used  to  convert  a  mail.aliases  map  to   a
mail.byaddr map.  This
     is an inverse map of user@host (or user!host) back to alias.

     The options are as follows:

     -v      Verbose mode.

     -e      Check host to verify that it exists.

     -E      Same as -e, but also check for any MX-record.

     -d      Assume Domain names are OK.   Only  useful  together
with -e or -E.

     -u      Assume UUCP names are OK.  Only useful together with
-e or -E.

     -n       Capitalize  name.  e.g.,   mats.o.jansson   becomes

     input   Use this map as input.

     output   Use  this  map  as output.  If the output map isn't
given don't create
 database.  Can be useful together with -e or -E.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     mkalias  on  SunOS  4.1.x seems to have a -s.  Since I don't
know what it is
     supposed to do I haven't implemented it.  But it is accepted
by the program.
