That all depends on what type of terminal you mean? Do you mean a text console program running on your machine? Do you mean 'what commads can I used in a terminal'? Or are you talking about external serial terminals, like the ones used in many libraries? Could you be a little more specific, please.

I'm generally interested in its architecture and use.
I mean answer to a questions "I've got many tty-s in my /dev. What for? How can they help me in my work? How can I use them?"

Browse the net (Lynx?)
