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

     ypmatch [-ktz] [-d domainname] key ... mapname
     ypmatch -x

     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, 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.
