      stty - set the options for a terminal port

      stty [-a | -g | options]

      stty sets or reports current settings of certain terminal I/O options
      for the device that is the current standard input.  The command takes
      four forms:

	   stty		       Report the settings of a system-defined set
			       of options;

	   stty -a	       Report all of current option settings;

	   stty -g	       Report current settings in a form that can be
			       used as an argument to another stty command.

	   stty options	       Set terminal I/O options as defined by

      For detailed information about the modes listed below from Control
      Modes through Local Modes as they relate to asynchronous lines, see
      termio(7).  For detailed information about the modes listed under
      Hardware Flow Control Modes below, see termiox(7).

      Options in the Combination Modes group are implemented using options
      in the previous groups.  Note that many combinations of options make
      no sense, but no sanity checking is performed.

      options are selected from the following:

    Control Modes
      rows number	       Set the terminal window row size equal to

      columns number	       Set the terminal window column size (width)
			       equal to number.	 cols can be used as an
			       abbreviation for columns.

      parenb (-parenb)	       Enable (disable) parity generation and

      parodd (-parodd)	       Select odd (even) parity.

      cs5 cs6 cs7 cs8	       Select character size (see termio(7)).

    Hardware Flow Control Modes
      The following options are reserved for use with those devices that
      support hardware flow control through the termiox interface.  If the
      functionality is supported, this interface must be used.

			       character is erase, kill, intr, quit, eof,

			       control, susp and dsusp characters can also
			       be set.	For systems that support shell
			       layers (see shl(1)) swtch can also be set.
			       If c is preceded by an (escaped from the
			       shell) circumflex (^), the value used is the
			       corresponding control character (for example,
			       ^d represents Ctrl-d); ^?  is interpreted as
			       DEL and ^- is interpreted as undefined.

      line i		       Set line discipline to i where the value of i
			       ranges from zero through 127 decimal (See

    Control Character Default Assignments
      The control characters are assigned default values when the terminal
      port is opened, see termio(7).  The default values used are those
      specified by the System V Interface Definition, Third Edition (SVID3),
      except for the werase and lnext control characters, which are set to
      _POSIX_VDISABLE to maintain binary compatibility with previous
      releases of HP-UX.

 Hewlett-Packard Company	    - 6 -   HP-UX Release 11i: November 2000

 stty(1)							     stty(1)

      The default values for the control characters may be changed by a user
      with root capability by using stty and redirecting stdin to the device
      /dev/ttyconf.  Any of the four command forms specified in the
      Description section above may be used.  However, only the control
      character defaults will be reported or altered.  It will have no
      effect on the defaults for any of the other modes.

      Note that these defaults will be used for all terminal ports in the
      system, except the system console, and the changes will not become
      effective for a particular port until it is (re)opened.  The default
      control character assignment will not work with the system console
      because the system console is never closed while the system is
      running, and therefore cannot be reopened.

      Care should be exercised when re-assigning the control character
      defaults.	 Control character values should be tested with applications
      before assigning them as a default value.

    Environment Variables
      LC_CTYPE determines the valid control characters for printing.

      If LC_CTYPE is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty
      string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each unspecified or
      empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to the empty
      string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of LANG.  If
      any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, stty
      behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".	See

    International Code Set Support
      Single-byte character code sets are supported.

      The command:

	   stty kill '^X' intr '^C'

      sets the delete-line character to ^X (Ctrl-X) and the interrupt
      character to ^C.	This command is usually found in the .login or
      .profile file so that ^X and ^C need not be set by the user at each
      login session.

      The command:

	   stty kill '^X' intr '^C' werase '^W' <&lt&lt&lt;/dev/ttyconf

      sets the default values for the delete-line character to ^X (Ctrl-X),
      the interrupt character to ^C, and the word erase character to ^W.
      Any terminal port opened after this command is issued will see these
      new default values for the kill, intr, and werase control characters.

      Use of raw mode produces certain side effects which have varied from
      release to release in the past and may vary in the future.  Relying on
      these side effects in applications can lead to unreliable results in
      the future and is therefore discouraged.
