NAME
       services	- Internet services and	aliases

DESCRIPTION
       The  services file contains an entry for	each service available through
       the TCP/IP.  Each entry consists	of a line of the form:

	      service-name   port/protocol   aliases

       service-name   This is the official Internet service name.

       port/protocol  This field is composed of	the port number	 and  protocol
		      through  which  the  service  is provided	(for instance,
		      512/tcp).

       aliases	      This is a	list of	alternate names	by which  the  service
		      might be requested.

       Fields  can  be	separated  by  any  number  of spaces or TAB's.	 A `#'
       (pound-sign) 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.

FILES
       /etc/services

SEE ALSO
       getservent(3N), inetd.conf(5)

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