NAME
       getrpcport - get RPC port number

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

DESCRIPTION
       getrpcport()  returns  the  port	 number for version versnum of the RPC
       program prognum running on host and using protocol proto.  It returns 0
       if  it  cannot contact the portmapper, or if prognum is not registered.
       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
       detected upon the first call to the service.

CONFORMING TO

       tems.
