Name
       gettable - get NIC format host tables from a host

Syntax
       /etc/gettable host

Description
       The  program  is	 used  to  obtain  the NIC standard host tables from a
       ``nicname'' server.  The indicated host is queried for the tables.  The
       tables, if retrieved, are placed in the file hosts.txt.

       The  program operates by opening a TCP connection to the port indicated
       in the service specification for ``nicname''.  A request is  then  made
       for ``ALL'' names and the resultant information is placed in the output
       file.

       The program is best used in conjunction with the program which converts
       the NIC standard file format to that used by the network library lookup
       routines.
