DESCRIPTION

       ypwhich  returns  the name of the NIS server that supplies
       the NIS services to a NIS client, or which is  the  master
       for a map.  If invoked without arguments, it gives the NIS
       server for the local machine. If  hostname  is  specified,
       that machine is queried to find out which NIS master it is
       using.

              ted, ypwhich will produce a list of available maps.
