NIS (YP) library for Ruby using libc's libnsl through ffi. It is known to work on Ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.3 and JRuby 1.6.
Please note that only a few functions have been implemented, so please fork and add the ones you need. It's really easy thanks to ffi!
For installation, see page on rubygems.org.
>> require 'nis-ffi' >> NIS.yp_match("nis.example.org", "passwd.byname", "username") => "username:42pwdhashBEEF:1000:1111:Full Name:/home/username:/bin/zsh"

Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
Fork the project

Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
