nisls(1)                         User Commands                        nisls(1)



NAME
       nisls - list the contents of a NIS+ directory

SYNOPSIS
       nisls [-dglLmMR] [name...]

DESCRIPTION
       For each name that is a NIS+ directory, nisls lists the contents of the
       directory. For each name that is a NIS+ object other than a  directory,
       nisls  simply echos the name. If no name is specified, the first direc-
       tory in the search path is listed. See nisdefaults(1).

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -d       Treat  NIS+ directories like other NIS+ objects,  rather  than
                listing their contents.



       -g       Display group owner instead of owner when listing in long for-
                mat.



       -l       List in long format. This option displays additional  informa-
                tion  about  the  objects  such  as their type, creation time,
                owner, and access rights.

                The access rights are listed in the following  order  in  long
                mode: nobody, owner, group owner, and world.



       -L       This  option  specifies that links are to be followed. If name
                actually points to a  link,  it  is  followed  to  the  linked
                object.



       -m       Display  modification time instead of creation time when list-
                ing in long format.



       -M       Master only. This specifies that information is to be returned
                from  the  master  server of the named object. This guarantees
                that the most up to date information is seen at  the  possible
                expense that the master server may be busy.



       -R       List  directories  recursively. This option will reiterate the
                list for each subdirectory found in  the  process  of  listing
                each name.



ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       NIS_PATH                If  this  variable is set, and the NIS+ name is
                               not fully qualified, each  directory  specified
                               will be searched until the object is found. See
                               nisdefaults(1).



EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0        Successful operation.



       1        Operation failed.

NOTES
       NIS+ might not be supported in future releases of the SolarisTM Operat-
