BCP Index

CREATED ON: Apr - 23 - 2014

o This file contains citations for all BCPs in numeric order.
o The BCPs form a sub-series of the RFC document series, specifically those RFCs with the status BEST CURRENT PRACTICE.

Num Information
#### Title of BCP.  Author 1, Author 2, Author 3.   Issue date. (ASCII) (Obsoletes xxx) (Obsoleted by xxx) (Updates xxx) (Updated by xxx) (Also RFC ####)

 - For example:
Num Information
0009 The Internet Standards Process -- Revision 3. S. Bradner. October 1996. (TXT=86731 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC1602) (Also RFC2026)

o Key to fields:

- #### is the BCP number. The remainder of the fields are the same as - those of the corresponding RFC, whose number is given in the final (Also RFC####) field.

- Following the BCP number are the title, the author(s), and the publication date of the RFC. Each of these is terminated by a period.

- The format and length follow in parenthesis. One or more of the following alternative formats are listed: ASCII text (TXT), PostScript (PS), and/or Adobe (PDF). Each format is followed by an equals sign and the number of bytes for that version. For example (TXT=aaaaa, PS=bbbbbb bytes) shows that the ASCII text version is aaaaa bytes, and the PostScript version of the RFC is bbbbbb bytes.

- "Obsoletes xxxx" refers to other RFCs that this one replaces; - "Obsoleted by xxxx" refers to RFCs that have replaced this one. - "Updates xxxx" refers to other RFCs that this one merely updates but does not replace); "Updated by xxxx" refers to RFCs that have updated (but not replaced) this one. Generally, only immediately succeeding and/or preceding RFCs are indicated, not the entire history of each related earlier or later RFC in a related series.

- BCPs may be obtained using HTTP, FTP, or email. See the RFC Editor Web page http://www.rfc-editor.org
