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 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  The protocols file resides in /etc.

SEE ALSO
     getprotoent(3)

HISTORY
     The protocols file format appeared in 4.2BSD.

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