     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 long format.

     -l       List in long format.  This  option  displays  addi-
              tional  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

     -L       This option specifies that links  are  to  be  fol-
              lowed.  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.

     NIS_PATH                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 nisdefaults(1).

     The following exit values are returned:

     0        Successful operation.

     1        Operation failed.

     NIS+ might not  be  supported  in  future  releases  of  the
     Solaris  operating  system.  Tools to aid the migration from
     NIS+ to LDAP are available in the current  Solaris  release.
