NAME

  ttysrch - Lists absolute path	names for tty name searches

SYNOPSIS

  /etc/ttysrch

DESCRIPTION

  The ttysrch file contains a list of absolute path names.  This list is used
  by the ttyname(3) system call	to resolve tty names that are not contained
  in the /dev directory.

  Each entry in	the ttysrch file has the following format:

       /dev/xxx/N

  where:

  xxx	    A directory	name.  Due to display constraints of certain commands
	    (for example, rusers) a three-character name is recommended.

  N	    A number, which is the name	of the tty special file.  The
	    ttyname(3) system call assumes the number matches the minor
	    number of the dev_t	associated with	the tty	special	file.

  Comments lines are delineated	by a # in column 1.
