NAME

endservent, endservent_r - Close the network services database file.  

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc.so, libc.a)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <netdb.h>

void endservent(void);

[Digital]  The following function is supported in order to maintain backward compatibility with previous versions of the operating system. void endservent_r(        struct servent_data *serv_data);
 

STANDARDS

Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:

endservent(): XPG4-UNIX

Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags.  

PARAMETERS

[Digital]  For endservent_r() only, this is data for services database.  

DESCRIPTION

The endservent() function closes either the local /etc/services file or the NIS distributed services file, previously opened with the getservent(), getservbyname(), or getservbyport function. To determine which file or files to search, and in which order, the system uses the switches in the /etc/svc.conf file.

[Digital] If the most recent setservent() function was performed with a nonzero parameter, a subsequent endservent() function will not close the network services database file.  

NOTES

[Digital] The endservent_r() function is the reentrant version of the endservent() function. It is supported in order to maintain backward compatibility with previous versions of the operating system. The netdb.h header file defines the serv_data structure.  

ERRORS

Current industry standards do not define error values for the endservent() function.

[Digital]  If the endservent_r() function fails, errno may be set to: serv_data is NULL.  

FILES

Contains service names. The database service selection configuration file.
