The Service Location Protocol (SLP) provides a way for clients to dynamically discovery network services. This document describes a standardized API for SLP in the C language. In addition, standardized file formats for configuration and serialized registrations are defined. This document defines a new API for SLP that supercedes the definition in RFC 2614.
