 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      disktab is a simple database that describes disk geometries.  Entries
      in disktab consist of a number of colon-separated fields.  The first
      entry for each disk gives the names by which the disk is known,
      separated by vertical bar (|) characters.

      This file is provided for backward compatibility with previous HP-UX
      releases only.  Its use is discouraged.

      The following list indicates the normal values stored for each disk
      entry.  Sectors are of size DEV_BSIZE, defined in <sys/param.h>.

           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
            b0    num    Block size (bytes)
