TTYTYPE(5)                    File Formats Manual                   TTYTYPE(5)



NAME
       ttytype - data base of terminal types by port

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ttytype

DESCRIPTION
       Ttytype  is a database containing, for each tty port on the system, the
       kind of terminal that is attached to it.  There is one line  per  port,
       containing  the  terminal  kind  (as  a  name listed in termcap (5)), a
       space, and the name of the tty, minus /dev/.

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

SEE ALSO
       tset(1), login(1)

BUGS
       Some lines are merely known as "dialup" or "plugboard".
