GETRPCPORT(3)              Linux Programmer's Manual             GETRPCPORT(3)

       getrpcport - get RPC port number

       #include <rpc/rpc.h>

       int getrpcport(const char *host, unsigned long prognum,
                      unsigned long versnum, unsigned proto);

       getrpcport()  returns  the  port  number for version versnum of the RPC
       program prognum running on host and using protocol proto.  It returns 0
       if  it  cannot contact the portmapper, or if prognum is not registered.
       If prognum is registered but not with version versnum,  it  will  still
       return  a port number (for some version of the program) indicating that
       the program  is  indeed  registered.   The  version  mismatch  will  be
       detected upon the first call to the service.
