Name
       disktab - disk description file

Syntax
       #include <disktab.h>

Description
       The file is a simple data base that describes disk geometries and disk partition characteristics.  The format is patterned after the termi-
       nal data base.  Entries in consist of a number of fields separated by colons (:).  The first entry for each disk gives the names  that  are
       known for the disk, separated by vertical bars (|).  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:
       Name Type Description
       ns   num  Number of sectors per track
       nt   num  Number of tracks per cylinder
       nc   num  Total number of cylinders on the disk
       ba   num  Block size for partition `a' (bytes)
       bd   num  Block size for partition `d' (bytes)
       be   num  Block size for partition `e' (bytes)
       bf   num  Block size for partition `f' (bytes)
       bg   num  Block size for partition `g' (bytes)
       bh   num  Block size for partition `h' (bytes)
       fa   num  Fragment size for partition `a' (bytes)
       fd   num  Fragment size for partition `d' (bytes)
       fe   num  Fragment size for partition `e' (bytes)
       ff   num  Fragment size for partition `f' (bytes)
       fg   num  Fragment size for partition `g' (bytes)
       fh   num  Fragment size for partition `h' (bytes)
       pa   num  Size of partition `a' in sectors
       pb   num  Size of partition `b' in sectors
       pc   num  Size of partition `c' in sectors
       pd   num  Size of partition `d' in sectors
       pe   num  Size of partition `e' in sectors
       pf   num  Size of partition `f' in sectors
       pg   num  Size of partition `g' in sectors
       ph   num  Size of partition `h' in sectors
       se   num  Sector size in bytes
       ty   str  Type of disk (e.g. removable, winchester)

       The entries can be automatically generated with the program.

NAME
disktab -- disk description file SYNOPSIS
#include <disklabel.h> DESCRIPTION
Disktab is a simple database which describes disk geometries and disk partition characteristics. 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 field for each entry gives the names by which a disk's entry may be selected, separated by `|' characters. The last name given should be a long name fully identifying the disk. The optional fields for each entry are: ID Type Description ty str Type of disk (e.g. removable, winchester) dt str Type of controller (e.g. SMD, ESDI, floppy) ns num Number of sectors per track nt num Number of tracks per cylinder nc num Total number of cylinders on the disk sc num Number of sectors per cylinder, ns*nt default su num Number of sectors per unit, sc*nc default se num Sector size in bytes, DEV_BSIZE default sf bool Controller supports bad144-style bad sector forwarding rm num Rotation speed, rpm, 3600 default sk num Sector skew per track, default 0 cs num Sector skew per cylinder, default 0 hs num Headswitch time, usec, default 0 ts num One-cylinder seek time, usec, default 0 il num Sector interleave (n:1), 1 default d[0-4] num Drive-type-dependent parameters bs num Boot block size, default BBSIZE sb num Superblock size, default 0 ba num Block size for partition `a' (bytes) bd num Block size for partition `d' (bytes) be num Block size for partition `e' (bytes) bf num Block size for partition `f' (bytes) bg num Block size for partition `g' (bytes) bh num Block size for partition `h' (bytes) fa num Fragment size for partition `a' (bytes) fd num Fragment size for partition `d' (bytes) fe num Fragment size for partition `e' (bytes) ff num Fragment size for partition `f' (bytes) fg num Fragment size for partition `g' (bytes) fh num Fragment size for partition `h' (bytes) oa num Offset of partition `a' in sectors ob num Offset of partition `b' in sectors oc num Offset of partition `c' in sectors od num Offset of partition `d' in sectors oe num Offset of partition `e' in sectors of num Offset of partition `f' in sectors og num Offset of partition `g' in sectors oh num Offset of partition `h' in sectors pa num Size of partition `a' in sectors pb num Size of partition `b' in sectors pc num Size of partition `c' in sectors pd num Size of partition `d' in sectors pe num Size of partition `e' in sectors pf num Size of partition `f' in sectors pg num Size of partition `g' in sectors ph num Size of partition `h' in sectors ta str Partition type of partition `a' (4.2BSD file system, swap, etc) tb str Partition type of partition `b' tc str Partition type of partition `c' td str Partition type of partition `d' te str Partition type of partition `e' tf str Partition type of partition `f' tg str Partition type of partition `g' th str Partition type of partition `h' FILES
