       ttytype - terminal device to default terminal type mapping

       The  /etc/ttytype  file	associates  termcap/terminfo  terminal type names with tty lines.
       Each line consists of a terminal type, followed by whitespace, followed by a tty  name  (a
       device name without the /dev/) prefix.

       This  association  is  used by the program tset(1) to set the environment variable TERM to
       the default terminal name for the user's current tty.

       This facility was designed for a traditional time-sharing environment featuring character-
       cell  terminals hardwired to a Unix minicomputer.  It is little used on modern workstation
       and personal Unixes.

       A typical /etc/ttytype is:

	      con80x25 tty1
	      vt320 ttys0

	      the tty definitions file.

       getty(1), terminfo(5), termcap(5)
