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

     mkalias - a YP map convertion program

     mkalias [-v] [-e] [-E] [-d] [-u] [-n] input [output]

     Mkalias is used to convert a mail.aliases map to a mail.byaddr map. This
     is a a inverse map of user@host (or user!host) back to alias.

     The options are as follows:

     -v      Verbose mode.

     -e      Check host to verify that it exists.

     -E      Same as -e, but also check for any MX-record.

     -d      Assume Domain names are OK. Only useful together with -e or -E.

     -u      Assume UUCP names are OK. Only useful together with -e or -E.

     -n      Capitalize name. eg mats.o.jansson becomes Mats.O.Jansson.

     input   Use this map as input

     output  Use this map as output. If the output map isn't given don't cre-
             ate database.  Can be useful together with -e or -E.

     mkalias on SunOS 4.1.x seems to have a -s. Since I don't know what it is
     supposed to do I havn't implemented it. But it is accepted by the pro-

     yp(8),  ypserv(8)
