Berkeley Unix networking device which appears to an
application program as an ordinary terminal but which is in
fact connected via the network to a process running on a
different host or a windowing system. Pseudo-ttys have a
slave half and a control half. The slave tty (/dev/ttyp*) is
the device that user programs use and the control tty
(/dev/ptyp*) is used by daemons to talk to the net.
