Figure 1 shows the format: |<---32 bits--->|<---32 bits--->|<----16 bits---->|<------?------>| +---------------+---------------+-----------------+---------------+ | leader | marking | checksum | padding | +---------------+---------------+-----------------+---------------+ Figure 1 Zero Text Length EOF Message [ This RFC was put into machine readable form for entry ] [ into the online RFC archives by Michael Brunnbauer 1/97 ] [Page 1]
