ypmatch(1)				  User Commands 			       ypmatch(1)

       ypmatch - print the value of one or more keys from a NIS map

       ypmatch [-k] [-t] [-d domain] key [key]... mname

       ypmatch -x

       ypmatch	prints	the  values associated with one or more keys from the NIS's name services
       map specified by mname, which may be either a map name or a map nickname.

       Multiple keys can be specified; all keys will be searched for in the same  map.	The  keys
       must  be  the  same  case  and  length.	No pattern matching is available. If a key is not
       matched, a diagnostic message is produced.

       The following options are supported:

       -k	    Before printing the value of a key, print the key itself, followed by a colon

       -t	    Inhibit map nickname translation.

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

       -x	    Display  the  map  nickname table. This lists the nicknames the command knows
		    of, and indicates the map name associated with each nickname.

       The following operand is supported:

       mname	The NIS's name services map

       The following exit values are returned:

       0    Successful operation.

       1    An error occurred.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWnisu			   |

       ypcat(1), ypfiles(4), attributes(5)

       ypmatch will fail with an RPC error message on yp operation if enough file descriptors are
       not available. The number of file descriptors should be increased if this occurs.
