NAME

  pseudo - Starts a non-STREAMS	pty interface for a STREAMS device

SYNOPSIS

  pseudo [-l] [-shell shell]

OPTIONS

  -l  Starts a shell process as	the login shell. By default, the command
      starts this process as an	interactive shell.

  -shell shell
      Specifies	the shell to be	started.  By default, the command starts the
      shell set	by the SHELL environment variable.

DESCRIPTION

  The pseudo command provides an appropriate interface for STREAMS tty dev-
  ices that are	installed on systems configured	to use the non-STREAMS pty
  driver.

  The pseudo command opens a pair of master and	slave pty devices, and starts
  a shell process. The command's options allow you to override the default
  shell	specification and to specify that the process be started as a login
  shell.

NOTES

  The pseudo command is	available only when one	or more	of the Tru64 UNIX
  optional subsets with	worldwide support software are installed on your sys-
  tem.

  In order for the pseudo command to provide a non-STREAMS pty interface for
  STREAMS devices, the system must be configured to use	the non-STREAMS	pty
  driver. If the system	is configured to use the STREAMS pty driver, the com-
  mand provides	a STREAMS pty interface.
