       interface-order - resolvconf configuration file

       The  file  /etc/resolvconf/interface-order is used to control the order
       in which resolvconf nameserver information  records  are	 processed  by
       those  resolvconf  update scripts that consult this file.  (The name of
       the file is apt because a resolvconf nameserver information  record  is
       named after the interface with which it is associated.)

       The file contains a sequence of shell glob patterns, one per line.  The
       position of a record in the order is the point at which its name	 first
       matches a pattern.

       Patterns may not contain whitespace, slashes or initial dots or tildes.
       Blank lines and lines beginning with a '#' are ignored.

       Resolvconf update scripts  in  /etc/resolvconf/update.d/	 that  consult
       this  file  include  the current default versions of dnsmasq, pdnsd and
       libc.  (Actually they don't read the file directly; they call the util‐
       ity  program  /lib/resolvconf/list-records  which  lists records in the
       specified order and omits the names of empty records.)

       # /etc/resolvconf/interface-order
       # Use nameservers on the loopback interface first.
       # Next use records for Ethernet interfaces
       # Next use records for Wi-Fi interfaces
       # Next use records for PPP interfaces
       # Last use other interfaces
