The odld daemon processes the font loading requests issued by the Asian terminal driver (atty) through the utx pseudo device driver. The odl parameter of the stty command spawns the odld daemon (see stty(1)). The stty command includes additional parameters that affect SoftODL operation. FILES
The utx device special files SEE ALSO
Commands: stty(1), utxd(8) Files: cp_dirs(4), atty(7), utx(7) Others: odl(5) odld(8)
