NAME
       cvt - calculate VESA CVT mode lines

SYNOPSIS
       cvt [-v|--verbose] [-r|--reduced] h-resolution v-resolution [refresh]

DESCRIPTION
       Cvt  is	a utility for calculating VESA Coordinated Video Timing modes.	Given the desired
       horizontal and vertical resolutions, a modeline adhering to the CVT standard  is  printed.
       This modeline can be included in Xorg xorg.conf(5)

OPTIONS
       refresh Provide	a  vertical  refresh  rate  in Hz.  The CVT standard prefers either 50.0,
	       60.0, 75.0 or 85.0Hz.  The default is 60.0Hz.

       -v|--verbose
	       Warn verbosely when a given mode does not completely  correspond  with  CVT  stan-
	       dards.

       -r|--reduced
	       Create  a  mode	with reduced blanking.	This allows for higher frequency signals,
	       with a lower or equal dotclock. Not for Cathode Ray Tube based displays though.
