  Description     : RPC protocol compiler and definitions

rpcgen is a tool that generates C code to implement an RPC protocol. The input
to rpcgen is a language similar to C known as RPC Language (Remote Procedure
Call Language).

This package also includes several rpcsvc header files and RPC protocol
definitions from SunRPC sources that were previously shipped by glibc.

The glibc SunRPC implementation has been removed in glibc version 2.32.
It is replaced by rpcsvc-proto and libtirpc, which also brings new
features (IPv6, Kerberos support, etc.). This package will be maintained
within the glibc team.
