inetd.conf server arguments

The Server Arguments Field

All remaining fields on the /etc/inetd.conf configuration line are provided as command-line arguments to the server being invoked with exec(2). One common source of confusion is that these arguments start with the argument argv[0]. This allows the command name to differ from the pathname. This is useful when one executable exhibits different personalities depending upon its name.
