NAME
makedbm - create or dump a ypserv database file SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/yp/makedbm [-a | -r] [-b] [-c] [-s] [-l] [-i YP_INPUT_NAME] [-o YP_OUTPUT_NAME] [-m YP_MASTER_NAME] inputfile dbname /usr/lib/yp/makedbm -u dbname /usr/lib/yp/makedbm -c /usr/lib/yp/makedbm --version DESCRIPTION
makedbm takes the inputfile and converts it to a ypserv database file. In the moment, GDBM is used as database. Each line of the input file is converted to a single record. All characters up to the first TAB or SPACE are the key, and the rest of the line is the data. makedbm does not treat `#' as a special character. OPTIONS
-a Special support for mail aliases. We couldn't use sendmail for it, since sendmail uses db, but ypserv gdbm as database format. -b Insert the YP_INTERDOMAIN into the output. This key causes ypserv(8) to use DNS for host name and address lookups for hosts not found in the maps. -c send a YPPROC_CLEAR to the local ypserv(8). This causes ypserv to invalidate all cached entries. -l Convert the keys of the given map to lower case. -i YP_INPUT_NAME Create a special entry with the key YP_INPUT_NAME. -m YP_MASTER_NAME Create a special entry with the key YP_MASTER_NAME. If no master host name is specified, YP_MASTER_NAME will be set to the local host name. -o YP_OUTPUT_NAME Create a special entry with the key YP_OUTPUT_NAME. -r Handle `#' as comment sign and remove the comment. -s Secure map. Accept connections from secure NIS networks only (reserved ports). -u dbname Dump a ypserv database file. Prints out the file in text format, one entry per line, with a single space separating keys from values. --no-limit-check Don't check for NIS key and data limit. SEE ALSO

NAME
makedbm - make a dbm file, or get a text file from a dbm file SYNOPSIS
makedbm [-b] [-l] [-s] [-E] [-i yp_input_file] [-o yp_output_name] [-d yp_domain_name] [-m yp_master_name] [-S delimiter] [-D num- ber_of_delimiters] infile outfile makedbm [-u dbmfilename] DESCRIPTION
The makedbm utility takes the infile and converts it to a pair of files in ndbm format (see ndbm(3C)), namely outfile.pag and outfile.dir. Each line of the input file is converted to a single dbm record. All characters up to the first TAB or SPACE form the key, and the rest of the line is the data. If a line ends with `' (backslash), the data for that record is continued on to the next line. makedbm does not treat `#' (pound-sign) as a special character. Because makedbm is mainly used in generating dbm files for the NIS name service, it generates a special entry with the key yp_last_modi- fied, which is the date of infile (or the current time, if infile is `-'). The entries that have keys with the prefix yp_ are interpreted by NIS server utilities. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -b Insert the YP_INTERDOMAIN into the output. This key causes ypserv(1M) to use DNS for host name and address lookups for hosts not found in the maps. -d yp_domain_name Create a special entry with the key yp_domain_name. -D number_of delimiters Specify number_of_delimiters to skip before forming the key. -E Delimiters are escaped. -i yp_input_file Create a special entry with the key yp_input_file. -l Lower case. Convert the keys of the given map to lower case, so that, for example, host name matches succeed inde- pendent of upper or lower case distinctions. -m yp_master_name Create a special entry with the key yp_master_name. If no master host name is specified, yp_master_name is set to the local host name. -o yp_output_name Create a special entry with the key yp_output_name. -s Secure map. Accept connections from secure NIS networks only. -S delimiter Specify the delimiter to use instead of the default delimiter for forming the key. -u dbmfilename Undo a dbm file. Prints out the file in text format, one entry per line, with a single space separating keys from values. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: infile Input file for makedbm. If infile is `-' (dash), the standard input is read. outfile One of two output files in ndbm format: outfile.pag and outfile.dir. ATTRIBUTES
