ofmipname(8)		    System Manager's Manual		  ofmipname(8)

NAME
       ofmipname - build a name-address	database for ofmipd

SYNTAX
       ofmipname name.cdb name.tmp

DESCRIPTION
       ofmipname  reads	a name-address table from its standard input.  It con-
       verts the table into a database suited for quick	access by ofmipd.

       ofmipname writes	the database to	name.tmp; it then  moves  name.tmp  to
       name.cdb.  name.tmp and name.cdb	must be	on the same filesystem.

       If there	is a problem creating name.tmp,	ofmipname complains and	leaves
       name.cdb	alone.

       The database format is portable across machines.

INPUT FORMAT
       The  name-address  table	 is  a	 series	  of   lines   of   the	  form
       key:name:address:  (including the final colon).	If ofmipd is given key
       (after hostname rewriting) as the return	path for a  message,  it  will
       replace the return path with address, eliminate any existing From field
       in the message, and insert a new	From field showing name	and address.

       ofmipname ignores any line beginning with #.

       For example:

	  # From: "Joe Shmoe" <J.Shmoe@sun.af.mil>
	  joe@sun.af.mil:Joe Shmoe:J.Shmoe@sun.af.mil:
