df Output Ordering
Sometimes questions come up that you know you should know the answer to but
you just don’t. My recent one was “how does
df choose the
output order?” The man page doesn’t mention the logic behind it and a quick
strace shows it pulls its data from
(which you’d expect) and returns the output in the same order. So logically
the question becomes how does
/proc/mounts order things?
It’s not exactly an important question but I can see how this ends - and it involves source code.
