The file /etc/resolvconf/interface-order is used to control the order
in which resolvconf nameserver information records are processed 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 /etc/resolvconf/update.d/ that consult
this file include the current default versions of dnsmasq, pdnsd and
libc. (Actually they don't read the file directly; they call the util-
ity program /lib/resolvconf/list-records 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
