[Dnsmasq-discuss] Leases file fields

Hello list,

I'm about to write a simple CGI script to parse my dnsmasq.leases file and
present the information in a web page, with MAC address vendors looked up
and included.  I'd just like to know the exact definition of the last field
on each line.

It is either a single asterisk for hosts whose MAC addresses are known (in
/etc/ethers) or it's a repeat of the MAC address of the device with the
ethertype included, for example:

1493791865 9c:5c:8e:xx:xx:xx jm-desktop *
1493751088 48:5a:b6:xx:xx:xx jm-chromebook

Is there a more precise description?  I couldn't find any details in the
man page.
