Here's the script I use to periodically remake my amd 'home' map from
a NIS+ map. (just change "niscat" to "ypcat -k" to use it with
NIS). By the way, you could perhaps hack the master NIS Makefile to
produce both the automount format map and the amd format.


print "/defaults opts:=resvport,nosuid\n";

open(TABLE, "rsh $server niscat auto_home.org_dir.$domain.|") || die "Can't run niscat";
while (<TABLE>) {
    if (m|^([\w-]+)\s+(\w+):([\w\/\-]+)/([\w&]+)$|) {
        $u = $1;
        $srv = $2;
        $dir = $3;
	$link = $4;
	$link = $u if ( $link = "&");
	print "$u\ttype:=nfs;rhost:=$srv;rfs:=$dir;sublink:=$link\n";
    } else {
	print STDERR "pb with '$_'\n";
close TABLE;
exit 0;
