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.
