NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ptem - Null STREAMS module for pseudoterminal emulation

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ptem  module is a null STREAMS module that Tru64 UNIX
       provides to applications for use in place of the AT&T System
  V Release 4 ptem module.  The AT&T System V Release 4
       ptem module emulates a pseudoterminal when  used  in  conjunction
  with  a line discipline and a pty device driver.
       In Tru64 UNIX, all of the AT&T ptem functions are included
       in the pty slave device driver.

       The  client  process  pushes the null ptem module onto the
       slave side of the pty device stream below the ldterm  module
 by a call to the STREAMS I_PUSH ioctl() function.

       Commands: stty(1)

       Interfaces: ldterm(7), pckt(7), streamio(7)
