MAKEDBM(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             MAKEDBM(8)

     makedbm - create a YP database

     makedbm -u file
     makedbm -U file
     makedbm [-bls] [-i yp_input_file] [-o yp_output_file] [-d yp_domain_name]
             [-m yp_master_name] infile outfile

     Makedbm is the utiliy in YP that creates the database file containing the
     YP map.  The databse format is a slightly modified version of ndbm.

     The options are as follows:

     -u      Dump a database to standard output.

     -U      Same as -u but also try db(3) hash format.

     -b      Interdomain. Include an entry in the database informing a YP
             server to use DNS to get information about unknown hosts. This
             option will only have effect on the two maps hosts.byname and

     -l      Lowercase. Convert all keys to lower case before adding them to
             the YP database.

     -s      Secure map. Include an entry in the database informing ypxfr(8)
             and ypserv(8) that the YP map is going to be handled as secure.

     -i yp_input_file
             Include an entry the in the map with the key YP_INPUT_FILE and
             the argument as value.

     -o yp_output_file
             Include an entry the in the map with the key YP_OUTPUT_FILE and
             the argument as value.

     -d yp_domain_name
             Include an entry the in the map with the key YP_DOMAIN_NAME and
             the argument as value.

     -m yp_master_name
             Include an entry the in the map with the key YP_MASTER_NAME and
             the argument as value.
