NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for disktab (netbsd section 5)

DISKTAB(5)			     BSD File Formats Manual			       DISKTAB(5)

NAME
     disktab -- disk description file

SYNOPSIS
     #include <disktab.h>

DESCRIPTION
     disktab is a simple database which describes disk geometries and disk partition characteris-
     tics.  It is used to initialize the disk label on the disk.  The format is patterned after
     the termcap(5) terminal data base.  Entries in disktab consist of a number of `:' separated
     fields.  The first entry for each disk gives the names which are known for the disk, sepa-
     rated by `|' characters.  The last name given should be a long name fully identifying the
     disk.

     The following list indicates the normal values stored for each disk entry.
