      ypmatch - print values of selected keys in Network Information Service

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

      ypmatch -x

      The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Yellow
      Pages (yp).  Although the name has changed, the functionality of the
      service remains the same.

      ypmatch prints the values associated with one or more keys in a
      Network Information Service (NIS) map specified by mname.	 The mname
      can be either a mapname or a map nickname.  A map nickname is a
      synonym by which a NIS map can be referenced.

      If multiple keys are specified, the same map is searched for an
      occurrence of each key.  A match is made only when the case and length
      of a key is the same as that stored in the database.  No pattern
      matching is available.  If a key is not matched, a diagnostic message
      is produced.

      ypmatch recognizes the following command-line options:

	   -k	   Before printing the value associated with a key, print
		   the key followed by a colon (:).  This option is useful
		   if the keys are not part of the values (as in a ypservers
		   map), or so many keys were specified that the output
		   could be confusing.

	   -t	   Inhibit the translation of a map's nickname to its
		   corresponding mapname.  For example, ypmatch -t zippy
		   passwd fails because there is no map named passwd, while
		   ypmatch zippy passwd is translated to ypmatch zippy

	   -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

      ypmatch was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
