NAME
  rpc -	Remote procedure call file

DESCRIPTION

  The rpc file is an ASCII file	that contains the following information:

  rpc name
  numerical rpc	ID
  aliases

  Each rpc name	is separated from the next by a	new line.  Items are
  separated by any number of blanks or tab characters or both.	A number sign
  (#) indicates	the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of	the
  line are not interpreted by routines that search the file.

  The rpc database can be distributed in a network by a	naming service,	such
  as Network Information Service (NIS) or BIND.	 See the Network Administra-
  tion:	Services for setup information.
