rpc - Remote procedure call file
The rpc file is an ASCII file that contains the following information:
numerical rpc ID
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.
