NAME

       rpc - rpc program number data base

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/rpc

DESCRIPTION

       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
       aliases

       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.
