Unix Version 7 - man page for mtab (v7 section 5)

MTAB(5) 					 File Formats Manual					      MTAB(5)

NAME
mtab - mounted file system table
DESCRIPTION
Mtab resides in directory /etc and contains a table of devices mounted by the mount command. Umount removes entries. Each entry is 64 bytes long; the first 32 are the null-padded name of the place where the special file is mounted; the second 32 are the null-padded name of the special file. The special file has all its directories stripped away; that is, everything through the last `/' is thrown away. This table is present only so people can look at it. It does not matter to mount if there are duplicated entries nor to umount if a name cannot be found.
FILES
/etc/mtab
