NAME
       deallocvt - deallocate unused virtual(5,8) terminals


SYNOPSIS
       deallocvt [ N1 N2 ... ]


DESCRIPTION
       If  given  no argument, the program deallocvt deallocates kernel memory
       and data structures for all unused virtual(5,8) terminals.  If arguments  Ni
       are given, only TTY's /dev/tty(1,4)Ni are deallocated.

       A  virtual(5,8)  terminal is unused if(3,n) it is not the foreground console(4,n), and
       no process has it open(2,3,n) for reading or writing, and  no  text  has  been
       selected on its screen.
