rpc(4)                           File Formats                           rpc(4)



NAME
       rpc - rpc program number data base

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/rpc

DESCRIPTION
       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'' and the NIS+ table ``rpc''.

       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.
