       hesinfo - find out what is stored in the Hesiod database

       hesinfo [-bl] HesiodName HesiodNameType

       hesinfo	takes  two  arguments, a name to be resolved and a string, known as a HesiodName-
       Type.  It then prints the information returned by the Hesiod nameserver.

       The value returned by hesinfo is of the type HesiodNameType.

       hesinfo understands the following options:

       -l     Selects long format.

       -b     Prints the fully-qualified string passed to the nameserver.

   VALID Hesiod_Names
       The following types of identifiers may be used in  the  HesiodName  argument  to  hesinfo.
       These values will be resolved by accessing the hesiod database.

	      the  8-character-or-less	string	used  to identify users or classes (e.g. joeuser,
	      root, 1.00, etc).  Used with the Hesiod_Name_Types passwd, pobox, and filsys.

       <uid>  the id number assigned to a user.

	      the id number assigned to a group.

	      a name identifying a unique group.

	      the name of an athena file system.

       <rvd server>:<pack>
	      the name of an rvd's server and pack  seperated by a colon.

       <nfs server>:<partition>
	      the name of an nfs server and its partition seperated by a colon.

	      the machine name of an Athena workstation (e.g. E40-343-3).

	      name of an Athena service (e.g. Zephyr).

	      name of Unix service (valid entries are defined in /etc/services).

	      name of a printer.

	      name of an Athena print cluster.

       <foo>  some hesinfo calls (e.g.	prclusterlist ) do  not  require  a  specific  HesiodName
	      argument.  However, you must include a dummy string (e.g. 'foo') for hesinfo
	       to work properly.

   VALID Hesiod_Name_Types
       The following symbols are valid substitutions for the HesiodNameType argument to hesinfo.

	      returns string suitable for inclusion in /etc/passwd, searching with <username>.

	pobox returns  information  on	the  pobox  assigned to the user specified by HesiodName,
	      searching with <username>.

	uid   returns string suitable for inclusion in /etc/passwd, searching with <uid>.

	gid   returns string suitable for inclusion in /etc/group, searching with <groupid>.

	group returns string suitable for inclusion in /etc/group, searching with <groupname>.

	      returns subgroups included in superset defined by <groupname>.

	      returns file system type, export point, server, mount mode, and  import  point  for
	      the  following valid HesiodNames (see above) - <file system name>, <username>, <rvd
	      server>:<pack>, and <nfs server>:<partition>

	      returns information about the local cluster the workstation, specified by <worksta-
	      tion  name>.  Included is information about the local file and print servers.  This
	      information is accesses by clusterinfo at boot time.

	sloc  returns network name of service host for <service-name>.

	      returns Internet protocol type and protocol service port for <service-type>.

	pcap  returns a valid entry for /etc/printcap for <printer-name>.

	      returns a list of print clusters.

	      returns a list of printers in a cluster specified by <printer-cluster-name>.
