Please read Name service facility, introduction first.

This package is internal and of no interest to users. It provides the commands of the name service facility which are shared by the client and server implemented by the packages nameserv::server and nameserv (the client).

This service is built in top of and for the package comm. It has nothing to do with the Internet's Domain Name System. If the reader is looking for a package dealing with that please see Tcllib's packages dns and resolv.


The package exports a single command, as specified below:


The result returned by the command is the id of the default TCP/IP port a nameservice server will listen on, and a name service client will try to connect to.
