TTYFLAGS(8)             OpenBSD System Manager's Manual            TTYFLAGS(8)

NAME
     ttyflags - set device-specific flags for terminals

SYNOPSIS
     ttyflags [-v] [-p] [-a | tty ...]

DESCRIPTION
     ttyflags sets the device-specific flags for terminals, based on the flags
     found on the terminal's line in /etc/ttys.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Set the flags for all terminals in /etc/ttys.

     -v      Be verbose about what the terminals' flags will be set to.

     -p      Print out flag information about each terminal, instead of set-
             ting anything.

     The tty arguments are optional, but must not be specified if the -a flag
     is used.  If specified, the tty arguments should be the base names of the
     ttys, as found in /etc/ttys.

FILES
     /etc/ttys

SEE ALSO
     getttyent(3), ttys(5)

HISTORY
     The ttyflags utility appeared in NetBSD 0.9A.

BUGS
     The conditions on which to report an error are ill-defined.  ttyflags
     tries to report all significant errors, perhaps going over-board at
     times.
