DESCRIPTION         top

       The quotatab file lists human descriptions of devices for the
       purpose of warnquota(8) notifications.

       Each line consists of a device path name followed by a colon and
       a description. White space, apostrophe, and double quote
       characters surrounding the names and descriptions will be
       stripped. The description field can encode a new-line as a pipe
       character.

       Empty lines or lines starting with a hash sign or a semicolon are
       ignored.
