NAME
       ypmatch - print the value of one	or more	keys from a NIS	map

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

       ypmatch -x

DESCRIPTION
       ypmatch	prints	the  values  associated	with one or more keys from the
       NIS's name services map specified by mname, which may be	either	a  map
       name or a map nickname.

       Multiple	 keys  can  be specified; all keys will	be searched for	in the
       same map. The keys must be the same case	and length. No pattern	match-
       ing is available. If a key is not matched, a diagnostic message is pro-
       duced.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -k	       Before printing the value  of  a	 key,  print  the  key
		       itself, followed	by a colon (:).

       -t	       Inhibit map nickname translation.

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

       -x	       Display	the  map  nickname table. This lists the nick-
		       names the command knows of, and indicates the map  name
		       associated with each nickname.

OPERANDS

       mname	The NIS's name services	map
