    DESCRIPTION

           The file /etc/networks is a plain ASCII file that describes known DARPA
           networks and symbolic names for these networks.  Each line represents a
           network and has the following structure:
    
                  name number aliases ...
    
           where  the  fields  are  delimited  by spaces or tabs.  Empty lines are
           ignored.  The hash character (#) indicates the start of a comment: this
           character,  and  the  remaining characters up to the end of the current
           line, are ignored by library functions that process the file.
    
           The field descriptions are:
    
           name   The symbolic name for the network.  Network  names  can  contain
                  any  printable  characters execept white-space characters or the
                  comment character.
    
           number The official number for this network in  numbers-and-dots  nota-
                  tion  (see  inet(3)).  The trailing ".0" (for the host component
                  of the network address) may be omitted.
    
           aliases
                  Optional aliases for the network.
    
           This file is read by the route(8) and netstat(8) utilities.  Only Class
           A,  B  or  C  networks  are supported, partitioned networks (i.e., net-
           work/26 or network/28) are not supported by this facility.
