console, systty, syscon — system console interface


/dev/console provides a termio interface to the device configured as the system console. The init(1M) manpage discusses the uses of /dev/systty and /dev/syscon.

Output data normally sent to the console, either through /dev/console or generated by a kernel printf(), may be redirected to another terminal or pseudo-terminal device through the TIOCCONS ioctl(). See termio(7) for details.
