console - console interface

system and system utility programs display error messages on the system
The console can be a serial terminal connected to the first serial port
on the back panel of the workstation or it can be a logical terminal
represented by a text window on the graphics monitor.
The device special file /dev/console represents the system console. When
the console is a window on the graphics monitor, /dev/console will be the
slave side of pseudo-tty (see pty(7)).
When the console is a serial terminal, the file /dev/console will be the
appropriate DUART device.
