rsports - Rose port configuration file.
Rsports is an ASCII file that contains information about each of the
Rose ports that are to be used. When dealing with a Rose utility such
as call, it takes an optional argument that is the port name. This port
name is a reference to the line within rsports, which has the same
name. The information on each line contains enough information to bind
the command to a particular Rose interface, this binding is done by
matching the address on the line in rsports with the address of the
port set by ifconfig or rsattach.
The rsports file may contain comments that begin with a # in the first
column, or a port description in the following format, each field being
delimited by white space:
name address description
The field descriptions are:
name this is the unique Rose port identifier.
address the address of the Rose interface to bind to.
description a free format description of this interface, this
field extends to the end of the line. It may
call(1), rose(4), ifconfig(8), rsparms(8).
