       cvt - calculate VESA CVT mode lines

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

       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)

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

	       Warn verbosely when a given mode does not completely  correspond  with  CVT  stan-

	       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.
