NAME
     ypmatch --	print the values of one	or more	keys in	a NIS database

SYNOPSIS
     ypmatch [-ktz] [-d	domainname] key	... mapname
     ypmatch -x

DESCRIPTION
     ypmatch prints out	the values of one or more keys from the	NIS database
     specified by mapname, which may be	a map name or a	map nickname.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	domainname
	     Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -k	     Print the map key followed	by a colon, before printing key	value.
	     This option is useful with	maps in	which the values are null or
	     the key is	not part of the	value.

     -t	     Inhibit translation of map	nicknames to their corresponding map
	     names.

     -x	     Display the map nickname table, found in /var/yp/nicknames.  A
	     built-in default translation table	is used	if /var/yp/nicknames
	     does not exist (see nicknames(5) for details).

     -z	     Append a NUL character at the end of the key when doing the
	     lookup.  This is useful for mail.aliases maps, which include a
	     trailing NUL in the keys.
