nisls - list the contents of a NIS+ directory
nisls [-dglLmMR] [name...]
For each name that is a NIS+ directory, nisls lists the con-
tents of the directory. For each name that is a NIS+ object
other than a directory, nisls simply echos the name. If no
name is specified, the first directory in the search path is
listed. See nisdefaults(1).
The following options are supported:
-d Treat NIS+ directories like other NIS+ objects,
rather than listing their contents.
-g Display group owner instead of owner when listing in
-l List in long format. This option displays additional
information about the objects such as their type,
creation time, owner, and access rights.
The access rights are listed in the following order in
long mode: nobody, owner, group owner, and world.
-L This option specifies that links are to be followed.
If name actually points to a link, it is followed to
the linked object.
-m Display modification time instead of creation time
when listing in long format.
-M Master only. This specifies that information is to be
returned from the master server of the named object.
This guarantees that the most up to date information
is seen at the possible expense that the master server
may be busy.
-R List directories recursively. This option will
reiterate the list for each subdirectory found in the
process of listing each name.
If this variable is set, and the NIS+ name is not
fully qualified, each directory specified will be
searched until the object is found. See nisde-
The following exit values are returned:
0 Successful operation.
