ypmatch -- print the values of one or more keys in a NIS database
ypmatch [-ktz] [-d domainname] key ... mapname
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:
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
-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.
