networks - network name file
The file is an ASCII file that contains information regarding the known networks in the DARPA Internet. For each network, a single line
should be present with the following information:
Official network name
Each name is separated from the next by a newline. Items are separated by any number of blanks or tab characters or both. A number sign
(#) indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines that 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 or unknown networks.
The network number may be specified in the conventional dot (.) notation using the routine from the Internet address manipulation library,
Network names may contain any printable character other than a field delimiter, newline, or comment character.
The database may be distributed in a network by a naming service, such as Yellow Pages or BIND/Hesiod. See the Guide to the Yellow Pages
Service or the Guide to the BIND/Hesiod Service for setup information.
