DESCRIPTION

       Please read Name service facility, introduction first.

       This package is internal and of no interest to users. It provides the commands of the name
       service facility which are shared by the client and server  implemented  by  the  packages
       nameserv::server and nameserv (the client).

       This  service  is built in top of and for the package comm.  It has nothing to do with the
       Internet's Domain Name System. If the reader is looking for a package  dealing  with  that
       please see Tcllib's packages dns and resolv.

API

       The package exports a single command, as specified below:

       ::nameserv::common::port
              The  result  returned  by  the  command  is  the  id  of  the default TCP/IP port a
              nameservice server will listen on, and a name service client will  try  to  connect
              to.
