NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ypcat  -  print values from an Network Information Service
       (NIS) data base

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       ypcat [-k] [-t] [-d domainname] mname

       ypcat -x

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Displays information on the domain  specified  by  domainname.
   Displays keys for maps in which values are null or
       key is not part of the  value.   Inhibits  translation  of
       mname to mapname. For example, ypcat -t passwd

              will  fail  because  there  is no map named passwd,
              whereas ypcat passwd

              will be translated to  ypcat  passwd.byname.   Displays
  map nickname table. This lists the nicknames
              (mnames) the command knows of,  and  indicates  the
              mapname associated with each nickname.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The ypcat command prints values stored in an NIS map specified
 by mname, which may be either a  mapname  or  a  map

       To   look   at   the   network-wide   password   database,
       passwd.byname,  with  the  nickname  passwd,  type:  ypcat
