       networks - Contains network name information


       The  networks  file  contains information about the known networks that
       comprise the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects  Agency)	Inter‐
       net. Each network is represented by a single line in the networks file.
       The format for the entries in the networks file	is  as	follows:  Name
       Number Aliases

       The  fields contain the following: The official network name.  The net‐
       work number.  The unofficial names used for the network.

       Items on a line are separated by one or more spaces or tab  characters.
       Comments	 begin	with  a # (number sign). Routines that search the net‐
       works file do not interpret characters from the beginning of a  comment
       to the end of that line.	 Network numbers are specified in dotted-deci‐
       mal notation.  A network	 name  can  contain  any  printable  character
       except a field delimiter, newline character, or comment character (#).

       The  networks  file is normally created from the official network data‐
       base maintained at the Network Information Center (NIC).	 The file  may
       need  to	 be  modified locally to include unofficial aliases or unknown

       Commands: route(8)
