How to use rpc.ypupdated on AIX

Can anyone tell me exactly what the purpose of rpc.ypupdated is and how to use it?  I have read the man page for it.  On
my system I have created a makefile /var/yp/updaters, which
when run will update one of the maps.  The man page says that ypupdated is called and then consults the updaters file
for determining how to update the NIS maps.  Since ypupdated
is an rpc service daemon, it should be called by a client.
What is this client?  In general, I'd like to know the basics and then how to get the ypupdated working.

The uipdaters file is a makefile, consulted by the ypupdated
daemon. Any client that needs some map updated, calls
ypupdated. Check e.g. the newkey or chkey commands;
they are typical clients of ypupdated.

kind regards,
