7        white space. Any entry beginning with '#' is ignored. Each line
8        in the lmhosts file contains the following information:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul type="disc"><li><p>IP Address - in dotted decimal format.</p></li><li><p>NetBIOS Name - This name format is a
9                maximum fifteen character host name, with an optional

11                as two hexadecimal digits.</p><p>If the trailing '#' is omitted then the given IP
12                address will be returned for all names that match the given
13                name, whatever the NetBIOS name type in the lookup.</p></li></ul></div><p>An example follows:

33        by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar
34        to the way the Linux kernel is developed.</p><p>The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer.
35        The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another
36        excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
37        <a href="ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/" target="_top">
38        ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/</a>) and updated for the Samba 2.0
39        release by Jeremy Allison.  The conversion to DocBook for
40        Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook
41        XML 4.2 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.</p></div></div></body></html>
