NAME
     ypwhich -- return hostname of YP server of map master

SYNOPSIS
     ypwhich [-d domain] [[-t] -m [mname] | host]
     ypmatch -x

DESCRIPTION
     Ypmatch tells which YP server supplies YP services to a client, or which is the master for a
     map.  If invoked without arguments, it gives the YP server for the local machine.	If host
     is specified, that machine is queried to find out which YP server it is using.

     The options are as follows:

     -d domain
	     Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -t      Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map names.

     -m [mname]
	     Find the master YP server for the named map.  No host may be specified with the -m
	     option.  Mname can be a map name or nickname.  If mname is ommitted, ypwhich will
	     produce a list of available maps.

     -x      Display the map nickname table.
