NAME
ypmatch -- print the values of one or more keys in a NIS database
SYNOPSIS
ypmatch [-ktz] [-b num_retry] [-d domainname] key ... mapname ypmatch -x
DESCRIPTION
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: -b num_retry Do not wait infinite time for the ypserver to come up. Retry only the specified number of times. See yp_setbindtries(3) for explanation. The valid range is limited from 0 to 65535 by this program. -d domainname 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 names. -x Display the map nickname table, found in /var/yp/nicknames. A built-in default translation table is used if /var/yp/nicknames does not exist (see nicknames(5) for details). -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.
