MirOS Manual: tty(1)

TTY(1)                       BSD Reference Manual                       TTY(1)


     tty - return user's terminal name


     tty [-s]


     The tty utility writes the name of the terminal attached to standard in-
     put to standard output. The name that is written is the string returned
     by ttyname(3).

     If the standard input is not a terminal, the message "not a tty" is writ-

     The options are as follows:

     -s      Don't write the terminal name; only the exit status is affected
             when this option is specified. The -s option is deprecated in
             favor of the "test -t 0" command.

     The tty utility exits 0 if the standard input is a terminal, 1 if the
     standard input is not a terminal, or >1 if an error occurred.


     stty(1), test(1), ttyname(3), tty(4)


     The tty utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 ("POSIX.2").


     A tty command appeared in Version 1 AT&T UNIX.
