 NAME
      console, systty, syscon - system console interface

 DESCRIPTION
      /dev/console provides a termio interface to the device configured as
      the system console.  The init(1M) man page discusses the uses of
      /dev/systty and /dev/syscon.

      Output data normally sent to the console, either through /dev/console
      or generated by a kernel printf, may be redirected to another terminal
      or pseudo-terminal device through the TIOCCONS ioctl().  See termio(7)
      for details.
