Name        : libtirpc

Summary     : Transport Independent RPC Library
Description :
This package contains SunLib's implementation of transport-independent
RPC (TI-RPC) documentation.  This library forms a piece of the base of
Open Network Computing (ONC), and is derived directly from the
Solaris 2.3 source.

TI-RPC is an enhanced version of TS-RPC that requires the UNIX System V
Transport Layer Interface (TLI) or an equivalent X/Open Transport Interface
(XTI).  TI-RPC is on-the-wire compatible with the TS-RPC, which is supported
by almost 70 vendors on all major operating systems.  TS-RPC source code
(RPCSRC 4.0) remains available from several internet sites.

    write_vc: fix write retry loop for nonblocking mode
    This is a simple fix for the write retry loop that is used on
    non-blocking connections if write() failed with -EAGAIN.
    Additionally it removes a redundant if () {}
    Erroneously at each cycle of the loop the length of the data
    to send is incremented and the buffer pointer is decremented.
    Thus, it might happen that:
    * the application crashes
    * data from the memory before the buffer is sent
