 NAME
      ypcat - print all values in Network Information Service map

 SYNOPSIS
      ypcat [-k] [-t] [-d domain] mname

      ypcat -x

    Remarks
      The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Yellow
      Pages (YP).  The functionality of the two remains the same; only the
      name has changed.

 DESCRIPTION
      ypcat prints all values in a Network Information Service (NIS) map
      specified by mname, which can be either a mapname or a map nickname.
      A map nickname is a synonym by which a NIS map can be referenced.
      Values are listed, one per line.

    Options
      ypcat recognizes the following options:

	   -k	   Print the associated key preceding each value.  This
		   option is useful for examining maps in which the values
		   are null or the keys are not part of the value, such as
		   the ypservers map.  The maps derived from files that have
		   an ASCII version in /etc (such as passwd and hosts) are
		   not in this category.

	   -t	   Inhibit the translation of a map's nickname to its
		   corresponding mapname.  For example, ypcat -t passwd
		   fails because there is no map named passwd, whereas ypcat
		   passwd translates to ypcat passwd.byname.

	   -d	   Specify a domain other than the one returned by
		   domainname (see domainname(1)).

	   -x	   Display the table that lists the nickname for each NIS
		   map.

 AUTHOR
      ypcat was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.

 EXAMPLES
      Display the network-wide password database whose mapname is
      passwd.byname and nickname is passwd :

	   ypcat passwd
