RPC(5) Linux Programmer's Manual RPC(5)


rpc - RPC program number data base




The rpc file contains user readable names that can be used in place of RPC program numbers. Each line has the following information:
name of server for the RPC program
RPC program number
Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters. A '#' indicates the beginning of a comment; characters from the '#' to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.
Here is an example of the /etc/rpc file from the Sun RPC Source distribution.
