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  informa-
       tion:

       official protocol name
       protocol 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  rou-
       tines which search the file.

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

FILES
       /etc/protocols

SEE ALSO
       getprotoent(3N)

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