 NAME
      ttytype - data base of terminal types by port

 SYNOPSIS
      /etc/ttytype

 DESCRIPTION
      ttytype is a database that identifies the kind of terminal that is
      attached to each tty port on the system.	The file contains one line
      per port, and each line contains the terminal type (as a name listed
      in terminfo(4)), a space, and the name of the tty device file, less
      the initial /dev/.  For example, for an HP 2622 terminal on tty02:

	   2622 tty02

      This information is read by tset and by login (for remote logins) to
      initialize the TERM variable at login time (see tset(1) and login(1)).

 AUTHOR
      ttytype was developed by the University of California, Berkeley.

 SEE ALSO
      login(1), tset(1).

 WARNINGS
      Some lines are identified simply as dialup or plugboard.
