RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ttytype (redhat section 5)

TTYTYPE(5)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       TTYTYPE(5)

NAME
       ttytype - terminal device to default terminal type mapping

DESCRIPTION
       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.

EXAMPLE
       A typical /etc/ttytype is:

	      con80x25 tty1
	      vt320 ttys0

FILES
       /etc/ttytype
	      the tty definitions file.
