       networks - network name information

       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.  If a line contains a hash mark (#), the  hash	mark  and  the
       remaining part of the line are ignored.

       The field descriptions are:

       name   The symbolic name for the network.

       number The official number for this network in dotted-decimal notation.
	      The trailing ".0" may be omitted.

	      Optional aliases for the network.

       This file is read by route or netstat utilities.  Only Class A, B or  C
       networks  are  supported, partitioned networks (i.e. network/26 or net
       work/28) are not supported by this facility.

	      The networks definition file.
