       The getrpcent_r(), getrpcbyname_r(), and getrpcbynumber_r() functions
       are the reentrant equivalents of, respectively, getrpcent(3),
       getrpcbyname(3), and getrpcbynumber(3).  They differ in the way that
       the rpcent structure is returned, and in the function calling signature
       and return value.  This manual page describes just the differences from
       the nonreentrant functions.

       Instead of returning a pointer to a statically allocated rpcent
       structure as the function result, these functions copy the structure
       into the location pointed to by result_buf.

       The buf array is used to store the string fields pointed to by the
       returned rpcent structure.  (The nonreentrant functions allocate these
       strings in static storage.)  The size of this array is specified in
       buflen.  If buf is too small, the call fails with the error ERANGE, and
       the caller must try again with a larger buffer.  (A buffer of length
       1024 bytes should be sufficient for most applications.)

       If the function call successfully obtains an RPC record, then *result
       is set pointing to result_buf; otherwise, *result is set to NULL.

       On success, these functions return 0.  On error, they return one of the
       positive error numbers listed in ERRORS.

       On error, record not found (getrpcbyname_r(), getrpcbynumber_r()), or
       end of input (getrpcent_r()) result is set to NULL.

       ENOENT (getrpcent_r()) No more records in database.

       ERANGE buf is too small.  Try again with a larger buffer (and increased
