RFC Number : 13

Title : Zero Text Length EOF Message.

Network Working Group Vint Cerf
Request for Comments: 13 UCLA
20 August 1969

Referring to NWG/RFC: 11, it appears that file transmissions over
auxiliary connections will require some mechanism to specify 'END-OF-
FILE.' It is proposed that a length 0 (zero) message be used for this
purpose. Figure 1 shows the format:

|<---32 bits--->|<---32 bits--->|<----16 bits---->|<------?------>|
| leader | marking | checksum | padding |
