Description

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.
