The netdb.h header file required by the getrpcbyname, getrpcbynumber, getrpcent, endrpcent, and setrpcent routines is the same on Tru64 UNIX and HP-UX, but is found in different locations.

On Tru64 UNIX, applications that use these APIs include the following line:

#include <rpc/netdb.h>


C/C++ Functionsendrpcent C/C++ Functionsgetrpcbynumber C/C++ Functionssetrpcent
C/C++ Functionsgetrpcbyname C/C++ Functionsgetrpcent
