What Is rpcgen?

The rpcgen tool generates remote program interface modules. It compiles source code written in the RPC language. The RPC language is similar in syntax and structure to C. The rpcgen tool produces one or more C language source modules, which are then compiled by a C compiler.

The default output of rpcgen is:

rpcgen can optionally generate:

rpcgen significantly reduces the development time that would otherwise be spent developing low-level routines. Handwritten routines link easily with the rpcgen output. For a discussion of RPC programming without rpcgen, see Chapter 4, Programmer's Interface to RPC.
