I'd like to know if there is any way to syntax check map files for the automounter daemon (amd). The best that I could find is mk-amd-map -p, however it only seems to error on major syntax issues. More subtle things, like forgetting a space between a mount and a \, it seems to be fine with. I'm considering some way to auto-generate the maps based on a more structured syntax, but I'd like to avoid that if better options are available.
