GETRPCPORT(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		 GETRPCPORT(3)

NAME
     getrpcport	-- get RPC port	number

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     int
     getrpcport(char *host, int	prognum, int versnum, int proto);

DESCRIPTION
     The getrpcport() function returns the port	number for version versnum of
     the RPC program prognum running on	host and using protocol	proto.	It re-
     turns 0 if	it cannot contact the portmapper, or if	prognum	is not regis-
     tered.  If	prognum	is registered but not with version versnum, it will
     still return a port number	(for some version of the program) indicating
     that the program is indeed	registered.  The version mismatch will be de-
     tected upon the first call	to the service.
