NAME

fgconsole – print the number of the active VT.

SYNOPSIS

fgconsole [–help|–version|–next-available]

DESCRIPTION

If the active Virtual Terminal is /dev/ttyN, then prints N on standard
output.

If the console is a serial console, then “serial” is printed instead.

–next-available
Will show the next unallocated virtual terminal. Normally 6 vir‐
tual terminals are allocated, with number 7 used for X; this
will return “8” in this case.

NOTES
Under devfs, the consoles are in /dev/vc/N. devfsd may maintain sym‐
links for compatibility.
