rpc - rpc program number data base




The rpc file is a local source containing user readable names that can be
used in place of RPC program numbers. The rpc file can be used in
conjunction with or instead of other rpc sources, including the NIS maps
``rpc.byname'' and ``rpc.bynumber''.

The rpc file has one line for each RPC program name. The line has the
following format:

name-of-the-RPC-program RPC-program-number aliases

Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters. A
``#'' indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of
the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.
