       pseudo - Starts a non-STREAMS pty interface for a STREAMS device

       pseudo [-l] [-shell shell]

       Starts  a  shell	 process  as  the login shell. By default, the command
       starts this process as an interactive shell.  Specifies the shell to be
       started.	  By  default,	the  command starts the shell set by the SHELL
       environment variable.

       The pseudo command provides an appropriate interface  for  STREAMS  tty
       devices that are installed on systems configured to use the non-STREAMS
       pty driver.

       The pseudo command opens a pair of master and slave  pty	 devices,  and
       starts a shell process. The command's options allow you to override the
       default shell specification and to specify that the process be  started
       as a login shell.

       The pseudo command is available only when one or more of the Tru64 UNIX
       optional subsets with worldwide support software are installed on  your

       In  order for the pseudo command to provide a non-STREAMS pty interface
       for STREAMS devices, the system must be	configured  to	use  the  non-
       STREAMS	pty driver. If the system is configured to use the STREAMS pty
       driver, the command provides a STREAMS pty interface.
