NAME
     jid -- translates jail host names to jail ids and vice versa

SYNOPSIS
     jid hostname
     jid jail-id

DESCRIPTION
     jid translates jail host names to jail ids	and vice versa for running
     jails. When called	with an	integer	number as it's argument, jid assumes
     that it's a jail id and converts it to a host name. When called with any
     other text, jid uses it as	a host name and	tries to resolve it to a jail
     id.

NOTES
     Jail ids are an integer assigned when a jail starts up. Use jail(8) or
     jstart(8) with a -i argument to print the jail id for a running jail.
     jls(8) will also print jail ids for all jails running on the system.

     It	is possible to run two jails with the same host	name.  jid however al-
     ways only prints out one jail id for a given jail host name.

     jail(2), jail(8), jls(8), jstart(8)
