[macOS] I am attempting to find out the filesystem type so that I can specify the type in order to mount something; when I attempted to use "mount" to find out the filesystem type no type was listed. Instead of seeing something such as "/dev/disk on / type ext3" it lists "dev/disk on / ". How can I determine the filesystem type in order to mount something and is this a problem?

I was also unable to use df -T and df --print-type to check the filesystem type.

Unable to replicate:

$ mount
/dev/disk1 on / (hfs, local, journaled)

The filesystem is hfs.
