interface-order - resolvconf configuration file
is used to control the order
resolvconf nameserver information records
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
that consult this file include the current default versions of
(Actually they don't read the file directly;
they call the utility program
which lists records in the specified order
and omits the names of empty records.)
# 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
