       services - service name data base

       The services file contains information regarding the known services available in the DARPA
       Internet.  For each service a single line should be present with  the  following  informa-

       official service name
       port number
       protocol name

       Items  are  separated  by any number of blanks and/or tab characters.  The port number and
       protocol name are considered a single item; a ``/'' is used to separate the port and  pro-
       tocol  (e.g. ``512/tcp'').  A ``#'' indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to
       the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

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



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