And again...

Mate, you have signed up about 1.5 years ago,
and apparently have NEVER even tried to find
an answer yourself...

cd /usr/src/linux/Documentation
grep -R PTY *

:P


Cheers,
Tink

Sure ... upgrade your grep, and/or install proper Linux
kernel sources.
I had 47 lines of hits, admittedly 4 of them weren't related
to PTY's ...
