print the value of one or more keys from an NIS map
ypmatch [-d domain] [-k]
ypmatch prints the values associated with one or
more keys from the Network Information Service
(NIS) map (database) specified by
mname, which may be either a mapname or
a map nickname.
Multiple keys can be specified; the same map will be
searched for all. The keys must be exact values insofar as
capitalization and length are concerned. No pattern
matching is available. If a key is not matched, a
diagnostic message is produced.
specify a domain other than the default domain
Before printing the value of a key, print the
key itself, followed by a colon (:). This is useful only
if the keys are not duplicated in the values or you have
specified so many keys that the output could be confusing.
inhibit translation of nickname to
mapname. For example, ypmatch -t zippy
passwd will fail because there is no map named
passwd, while ypmatch zippy passwd will
be translated to ypmatch zippy passwd.byname.
display the map nickname table.
This lists the nicknames (mnames) the
command knows of and indicates the mapname
associated with each nickname.
