NAME
       services	- service name data base

DESCRIPTION
       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 information:

       official	service	name
       port number
       protocol	name
       aliases

       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 protocol (e.g. ``512/tcp'').  A ``#'' in-
       dicates 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.

FILES
       /etc/services

SEE ALSO
       getservent(3N)

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