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
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.
