Questions about (Pseudo)Terminal devices
I'm learning(trying to) about Terminal and pseudo-terminal devices.
1---I've read that on unix's BSD systems files with names like /dev/ptyp0 or /dev/ptyp3 represent pseudo terminal master devices, and files like /dev/tty3 represent slave devices.
Are same files used in linux also?
2---If the above files represent pseudo terminals,then what do /dev/pts/"some number" represent?
3---Which files represent local (NON-pseudo) terminals?
4---When I log in locally,is my keyboard and display card considered a regular terminal?
I'm asking this cos I have read in linux book that as far as Linux is concerned,those two are just very fast remote terminals (meaning pseudo terminals)
I hope you can help me on this,since info about terminals is very hard to find
thank you very much
