agetty Linux command on chromeOS
Are you looking to manage physical or virtual terminals? Agethy is the ultimate alternative to Linux getty. As a system program, agetty will enable you to manage physical or virtual terminals and it’s invoked by init.
In the event that a connection is detected, agetty opens a tty port, makes a request for a user’s login name and calls up the /bin/login command.
agetty [options] port [baud_rate…] [term]
agetty opens a tty port, prompts for a login name and invokes the
/bin/login command. It is normally invoked by init(8).
agetty has several non-standard features that are useful for hardwired
and for dial-in lines:
- Adapts the tty settings to parity bits and to erase, kill, end-
of-line and uppercase characters when it reads a login name.
The program can handle 7-bit characters with even, odd, none or
space parity, and 8-bit characters with no parity. The follow‐
ing special characters are recognized: Control-U (kill); DEL and
backspace (erase); carriage return and line feed (end of line).
See also the –erase-chars and –kill-chars options.
