41.Sh DESCRIPTION
42Files in
43.Nm
44format are rare.
45One lives in the
46.Tn YP
47map
48.Pa netid.byname .
49The format is rather simple.
50Each row consists of two items: a key and a value.
51When created by
52.Xr mknetid 8
53there are three types of records.
54.Pp
55The first type is information about which GIDs a UID has:
56.Pp
57.Sm off
58.Li unix . Ao Ar uid Ac @ Aq Ar yp-domain
59.Sm on
60.Sm off
61.Ao Ar uid Ac : Ao Ar gid Ac , Aq Ar gid
62.Sm on
63.Pp
64The second type contains information about hosts:
65.Pp
66.Sm off
67.Li unix . Ao Ar hostname Ac @ Aq Ar yp-domain
68.Sm on
69.Sm off
70.Li 0 : Aq Ar hostname
71.Sm on
72.Pp
73The third type refers to records from a
74.Xr netid 5
75file other than the two types above.
