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  terminal
       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.
