       inetd.conf - Internet daemon configuration data base

       The  file  contains information regarding the services that will handle
       by opening sockets and listening for requests.	For  each  service,  a
       single line should be present with the following information:

	      Official service name (must be in

	      Socket type (stream or dgram)

	      Protocol name (must be in

	      Delay (wait or nowait)

	      Program (fully specified server program name)

	      Arguments (up to five arguments for server program)

       Items  are separated by any number of blanks or tab characters.	A num‐
       ber sign (#) indicates the beginning of a comment.   Characters	up  to
       the  end	 of  the  line are not interpreted by routines that search the

       Fields may contain any printable character other than  a	 field	delim‐
       iter, newline, or comment character.

       A  server  marked  as ``wait'' must be able to handle all requests that
       come to it during its lifetime.	The program will not  invoke  any  new
       instances of the program until the current one terminates.  If a server
       is marked as ``nowait'', a new invocation of the server will be started
       for every incoming request.
