This protocol is also known as RFC 826 (sidebar on Creation of the Internet Protocol).
Other protocols mentioned in this article are also RFCs: the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is RFC 826; the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) was originally RFC 1531 but has been superseded twice.
For example, the problem statement in RFC 826 contains this gem: "The world is a jungle in general, and the networking game contributes many animals." No wonder networking can be confusing at times!
