NAME

     rpc -- rpc program number data base


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 up to the end of
     the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

     tion.

INTERACTION WITH DIRECTORY SERVICES

     Processes generally find protocol records using one of the getrpcent(3)
     family of functions.  On Mac OS X, these functions interact with the
     DirectoryService(8) daemon, which reads the /etc/rpc file as well as
     searching other directory information services to determine rpc name and
     program number information.


FILES

     /etc/rpc
