       ttydefs - file contains terminal line settings information for ttymon

       /etc/ttydefs is an administrative file that contains records divided into fields by colons
       (":").	This information used by ttymon to set up the speed and terminal settings  for	a
       TTY port.

       The ttydefs file contains the following fields:

       ttylabel 	The string ttymon tries to match against the TTY port's ttylabel field in
			the port monitor administrative file. It often	describes  the	speed  at
			which the terminal is supposed to run, for example, 1200.

       initial-flags	Contains  the initial  termio(7I) settings to which the terminal is to be
			set. For example, the system administrator will be able to  specify  what
			the  default  erase  and  kill	characters will be. initial-flags must be
			specified in the syntax recognized by the stty command.

       final-flags	final-flags must be specified in the same format as initial-flags. ttymon
			sets  these  final  settings after a connection request has been made and
			immediately prior to invoking a port's service.

       autobaud 	If the autobaud field contains	the  character	'A,'  autobaud	will   be
			enabled.  Otherwise,  autobaud	will  be disabled. ttymon determines what
			line speed to set the TTY port	to  by	analyzing  the	carriage  returns
			entered.  If  autobaud	has  been disabled, the hunt sequence is used for
			baud rate determination.

       nextlabel	If the user indicates that the current terminal setting is not	appropri-
			ate by sending a BREAK, ttymon searchs for a ttydefs entry whose ttylabel
			field matches  the nextlabel field. If a match is found, ttymon uses that
			field  as its ttylabel field. A series of speeds is often linked together
			in this way into a closed set called a hunt sequence. For  example,  4800
			may  be linked to 1200, which in turn is linked to 2400, which is finally
			linked to 4800.
