YPCAT(1)                    General Commands Manual                   YPCAT(1)

     ypcat - print the values of all keys in a NIS database

     ypcat [-kst] [-b num_retry] [-d domainname] mapname
     ypcat -x

     ypcat prints out the values of all keys from the NIS database specified
     by mapname, which may be a map name or a map nickname.

     The options are as follows:

     -b num_retry
             Do not wait infinite time for the ypserver to come up.  Retry
             only the specified number of times.  See yp_setbindtries(3) for
             explanation.  The valid range is limited from 0 to 65535 by this

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

     -k      Display map keys.  This option is useful with maps in which the
             values are null or the key is not part of the value.

     -s      When printing the value of a key, compress all whitespace
             characters to a single space.  Useful when values contain

     -t      Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map

     -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).
