Console IOCTLs under Linux

Author: JT Smith

Help Net Security "Console IOCTLs can be very useful and powerful. These are the IOCTls that involve the console. They are the user interface to manipulation of the console. I am going to go over these console IOCTLs and give you examples of them. You can make some pretty powerful programs, whether they be general utilities or security programs, with these (such as Auto Console Switching and Console Access Protection). The structure of this article will be the name of the IOCTL, and then example source code to uses of the IOCTL."
