Unhappy what exactly does this line of data mean for linux output

I used the mount command and now I have data which shows the following line of information:

sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/ rpc-pipfs type binfmt_misc (rw)

what does that all stand for?

You should always include the name of the distribution and the version of the distribution that you are using when you ask a question.

sunrpc means Sun Microsystems Remote Procedure Call

/var/lib/nfs/rpc-pipfs is the mount point

binfmt_misc is the data format

(rw) means that it is available for read and write access
