    The subject line says it all.

    Mr P.
    Want to show you a few lines from my fstab. I wrote a utility to xref the fstab. (GPL)
    #
    # /etc/fstab
    # Created by anaconda on Thu Sep 29 01:17:13 2016
    #
    # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under ‘/dev/disk’
    # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info
    #
    #<file system> <mount> <type> <options> <dmpPass> <xref> <label or uuid>
    UUID=da3d4352-99a1-48aa-a60c-016918c9a66d / xfs defaults 0 0 #/dev/sdc8 sdc8SlashCH

    ……

    UUID=c280160b-48e9-486c-a47e-41eff541ed3b swap swap defaults 0 0 #/dev/sdc10 sdc10swapCH

    At the tail end we see for example,….
    inserted header….<options> <dmpPass> <xref> <label or uuid>
    over the ….defaults 0 0 #/dev/sdc10 sdc10swapCH

    fstab is easy to eyeball and it tells me on which of my 6 disk partitions the UUID entry is located.

    Free if you are interested to have a copy (source in C) for whatever gpl disposition you choose.

    If you have UUID= then at the far right I show the label (I label my partitions).
    If instead of UUID= you have LABEL= then at the far right the xref would show the UUID for the LABEL.
