Package: GNU coreutils
Version: 8.5

Severity: wishlist

I'm trying to parse di output of df command to check how much free
space is left on my disks.
I need to check this by a script.
The problem is that, when the device name is long, we get a new line
in the output (see example below).
It's difficult then have data relate with the device name or mount
poiunt usign grep and awk.

Proposed Solution:
simply add an option to not wrap the output text.

File system           Dim. Usati Disp. Uso% Montato su
                      9,2G  3,3G  5,5G  38% /
tmpfs                 1,5G     0  1,5G   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M  224K  9,8M   3% /dev

                      5,0G  963M  3,8G  21% /opt

/dev/sdb1             977M  852M  125M  88% /media/VALERIO

###### trying to extract used % ######

$ df -h /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-dati  | awk '{print $4}'


$ df -h /dev/sdb1 | awk '{print $4}' | tr -d %

Ad you can see, the colum 4 is not the same (used% in the first case,
Total space in the second).

Thank you

Since I've just changed df to no longer split
entries with long device names over two lines
(since it now aligns columns consistently),
I'm closing these.
