networks - network name data base
The networks file contains information regarding the known networks which comprise the
DARPA Internet. For each network a single line should be present with the following
official network name
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 rou-
tines which search the file. This file is normally created from the official network data
base maintained at the Network Information Control Center (NIC), though local changes may
be required to bring it up to date regarding unofficial aliases and/or unknown networks.
Network number may be specified in the conventional ``.'' notation using the inet_net-
work() routine from the Internet address manipulation library, inet(3N). Network names
may contain any printable character other than a field delimiter, newline, or comment
A name server should be used instead of a static file.
