NAME


sttydefs - maintain line settings and hunt sequences for TTY ports

SYNOPSIS


/usr/sbin/sttydefs -a ttylabel [-b] [-f final-flags]
[-i initial-flags] [-n nextlabel]


/usr/sbin/sttydefs -l [ttylabel]


/usr/sbin/sttydefs -r ttylabel


DESCRIPTION


sttydefs is an administrative command that maintains the line settings
and hunt sequences for the system's TTY ports by making entries in, and
deleting entries from the /etc/ttydefs file.


sttydefs with a -a or -r option may be invoked only by the super-user.
sttydefs with -l may be invoked by any user on the system.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-a ttylabel
Add a record to the ttydefs file, using ttylabel as
its label. The following describes the effect of the
-b, -n, -i, or -f options when used in conjunction
with the -a option:


-b
Enable autobaud. Autobaud allows the system to set
the line speed of a given TTY port to the line speed
of the device connected to the port without the
user's intervention.


-f final-flags
Specify the value to be used in the final-flags field
in /etc/ttydefs. final-flags must be in a format
recognized by the stty command. final-flags are the
termio(7I) settings used by ttymon after receiving a
successful connection request and immediately before
invoking the service on the port. If this option is
not specified, sttydefs will set final-flags equal to
the termio(7I) flags 9600 and sane.


-i initial-flags
Specify the value to be used in the initial-flags
field in /etc/ttydefs. initial-flags must be in a
format recognized by the stty command. These flags
are used by ttymon when searching for the correct
baud rate. They are set prior to writing the prompt.
If this option is not specified, sttydefs will set
initial-flags equal to the termio(7I) flag 9600.


-n nextlabel
Specify the value to be used in the nextlabel field
in /etc/ttydefs. If this option is not specified,
sttydefs will set nextlabel equal to ttylabel.


-l[ttylabel]
If a ttylabel is specified, sttydefs displays the
record from /etc/ttydefs whose TTY label matches the
specified ttylabel. If no ttylabel is specified,
sttydefs displays the entire contents of
/etc/ttydefs. sttydefs verifies that each entry it
displays is correct and that the entry's nextlabel
field references an existing


-r ttylabel
Remove any record in the ttydefs file that has
ttylabel as its label.


OUTPUT


If successful, sttydefs will exit with a status of 0. sttydefs -l will
generate the requested information and send it to standard output.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: A sample of sttydefs command.




The following command lists all the entries in the ttydefs file and
prints an error message for each invalid entry that is detected.


example# sttydefs -l


The following shows a command that requests information for a single
label and its output:


example# sttydefs -l 9600
------------------------------------------------------------------
9600:9600 hupcl erase ^h:9600 sane ixany tab3 hupcl erase ^h::4800
------------------------------------------------------------------
ttylabel: 9600
initial flags: 9600 hupcl erase ^h
final flags: 9600 sane ixany tab3 hupcl erase ^h
autobaud: no
nextlabel: 4800


The following sequence of commands will add the labels 1200, 2400, 4800,
and 9600 and put them in a circular list:


sttydefs -a 1200 -n 2400 -i 1200 -f "1200 sane"
sttydefs -a 2400 -n 4800 -i 2400 -f "2400 sane"
sttydefs -a 4800 -n 9600 -i 4800 -f "4800 sane"
sttydefs -a 9600 -n 1200 -i 9600 -f "9600 sane"
