LIBNSL(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBNSL(3LIB)


NAME


libnsl - network services library

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lnsl [ library... ]


DESCRIPTION


Functions in this library provide routines that provide a transport-level
interface to networking services for applications, facilities for
machine-independent data representation, a remote procedure call
mechanism, and other networking services useful for application programs.


Some symbols are not intended to be referenced directly. Rather, they
are exposed because they are used elsewhere through a private interface.
One such example is the set of symbols beginning with the _xti prefix.
Those symbols are used in implementing the X/Open Transport Interface
(XTI) interfaces documented in libxnet. See libxnet(3LIB).

INTERFACES


The shared object libnsl.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined
