PROTOCOLS(5)              NetBSD File Formats Manual              PROTOCOLS(5)

NAME
     protocols -- protocol name data base

DESCRIPTION
     The protocols file contains information regarding the known protocols
     used in the DARPA Internet.  For each protocol a single line should be
     present with the following information:

           official protocol name
           protocol number
           aliases

     Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters.  A
     hash (``#'') indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the
     end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

     Protocol names may contain any printable character other than a field
     delimiter, newline, or comment character.

FILES
     /etc/protocols  The protocols file resides in /etc.

HISTORY
     The protocols file format appeared in 4.2BSD.

BUGS
     A name server should be used instead of a static file.
