ypmatch -- print the values of one or more keys in a NIS database
ypmatch [-ktz] [-d domainname] key ... mapname
ypmatch prints out the values of one or more keys from the NIS database
specified by mapname, which may be a map name or a map nickname.
The options are as follows:
Specify a domain other than the default domain.
-k Print the map key followed by a colon, before printing key value.
This option is useful with maps in which the values are null or
the key is not part of the value.
-t Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map
-x Display the map nickname table.
-z Append a NUL character at the end of the key when doing the
lookup. This is useful for mail.aliases maps, which include a
trailing NUL in the keys.
