NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       praliases - display system mail aliases

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       praliases [-f filename] [--] [alias_name...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Displays  the aliases using the specified dbm file instead
       of the system aliases file.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The alias name to find. If no aliases are given, then  the
       entire contents of the dbm file are displayed.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  praliases command displays system aliases used by the
       sendmail(8)  program.  If  no  arguments  are  given,  the
       praliases  command displays all of the system aliases contained
 in the file /var/adm/sendmail/aliases.

       An alternative file can be specified using the -f  option.

       Specific  aliases  can  be  displayed by specifying one or
       more alias names.

       [Tru64 UNIX]  Aliases can be created either with or  without
  the  terminating null character ('\0\') considered to
       be part of the name.  Under Tru64 UNIX, an attempt is made
       to find either version; other vendor's implementations may
       check only for the key with an embedded NULL.

       [Tru64 UNIX]  The system aliases file under Tru64 UNIX  is
       stored  under  the /var/adm/sendmail directory. Other vendor's
 implementations may expect the file to  exist  under
       the /etc directory.

       /usr/include/sysexits.h: No errors occurred.   An  invalid
