The term partition table is most commonly associated with the MBR partition table of a Master Boot Record (MBR) in IBM PC compatibles, but it may be used generically to refer to other "formats" that divide a disk drive into partitions, such as: GUID Partition Table (GPT), Apple partition map (APM), or BSD disklabel.
An alternative term to generically refer to partition table is partition map.
Famous quotes containing the word table:
“Comes the time when its later
and onto your table the headwaiter
puts the bill,”
