yppoll - ask version of YP map from YP server
yppoll [-h host] [-d domain] mapname
yppoll asks a YP server process for the order number and
which host is

The options are as follows:
Ask the YP server process running on host for information about
mapname. If host is not specified, the server
polled is the default
server returned by ypwhich(1).
Use the YP domain domain instead of the default domain as returned
domainname(1), ypcat(1), ypmatch(1), ypwhich(1), yp(8), ypbind(8),
