YPMATCH(1)              NetBSD General Commands Manual              YPMATCH(1)

NAME
     ypmatch -- print the values of one or more keys in a NIS database

SYNOPSIS
     ypmatch [-ktz] [-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:

     -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.

     -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.
