NAMEttytype - terminal device to default terminal type mapping
DESCRIPTIONThe /etc/ttytypefile associates termcap(5)/terminfo(5) terminal type names with tty lines. Each line consists of a terminal type, followed by whitespace, followed by a tty name (a device name without the /dev/) prefix.
This association is used by the program tset(1) to set the environment variable TERMto the default terminal name for the user's current tty.
This facility was designed for a traditional time-sharing environment featuring character-cell terminals hardwired to a UNIX minicomputer. It is little used on modern workstation and personal UNIX systems.
