MKALIAS(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             MKALIAS(8)

NAME
     mkalias - a YP map conversion program

SYNOPSIS
     mkalias [-v] [-e] [-E] [-d] [-u] [-n] input [output]

DESCRIPTION
     mkalias is used to convert a mail.aliases map to a mail.byaddr map.  This
     is an inverse map of user@host (or user!host) back to alias.

     The options are as follows:

     -v      Verbose mode.

     -e      Check host to verify that it exists.

     -E      Same as -e, but also check for any MX-record.

     -d      Assume Domain names are OK.  Only useful together with -e or -E.

     -u      Assume UUCP names are OK.  Only useful together with -e or -E.

     -n      Capitalize name. e.g., mats.o.jansson becomes Mats.O.Jansson.

     input   Use this map as input.

     output  Use this map as output.  If the output map isn't given don't cre-
             ate database.  Can be useful together with -e or -E.

BUGS
     mkalias on SunOS 4.1.x seems to have a -s.  Since I don't know what it is
     supposed to do I haven't implemented it.  But it is accepted by the pro-
     gram.
