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 char-
     acters.  A ``#'' indicates the beginning of a comment; char-
     acters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by rou-
     tines which search the file.
