makedbm is the utility in NIS that creates the db(3) database file con-
taining the NIS map.
infile is the pathname of the source file (where ``-'' is standard
input). Each line consists of the key and the value, with a space sepa-
rating the items. Blank lines are ignored, and a ``#'' is a comment
character and indicates that the rest of the line should be ignored.
outfile is the pathname of the generated database.
The options are as follows:
-b Interdomain. Include an entry in the database informing a NIS
server to use DNS to get information about unknown hosts. This
option will only have effect on the maps hosts.byname and
-l Lowercase. Convert all keys to lower case before adding them to
the NIS database.
-s Secure map. Include an entry in the database informing ypxfr(8)
and ypserv(8) that the NIS map is going to be handled as secure
(i.e., not served to clients that don't connect from a reserved
Include an entry in the map with `YP_DOMAIN_NAME' as the key and
yp_domain_name as the value.
Include an entry in the map with `YP_INPUT_FILE' as the key and
yp_input_file as the value.
Include an entry in the map with `YP_MASTER_NAME' as the key and
yp_master_name as the value.
Include an entry in the map with `YP_OUTPUT_FILE' as the key and
yp_output_file as the value.
Dump the contents of dbfile to standard output, in a format suit-
able to be passed back into makedbm. dbfile is the pathname to
db(3), nis(8), ypserv(8), ypxfr(8)
