       ct - spawn getty to a remote terminal (call terminal)

       n] n] speed] telno...

       dials telno, the telephone number of a modem that is attached to a ter‐
       minal, and spawns a getty(1M) process to that terminal.

       tries each line listed in file until it finds an	 available  line  with
       appropriate  attributes	or runs out of entries.	 If no lines are free,
       asks whether it should wait for a line, and if so, how many minutes  it
       should  wait before giving up.  searches again for an available line at
       one-minute intervals until the specified limit is exceeded.  Note  that
       normally, disconnects the current tty line, so that the line can answer
       the incoming call.  This is because assumes that the current  tty  line
       is connected to the terminal to spawn the process.

       The  telno  argument  specifies the telephone number, which can be com‐
       posed of characters through and Use equal signs	to  signify  secondary
       dial tones and minus signs for delays at appropriate places.  The maxi‐
       mum length of telno is 31 characters.  If more than one telephone  num‐
       ber  is	specified, tries each in succession until one answers; this is
       useful for specifying alternate dialing paths.

       When disconnects the current line, should not be spawned on  this  line
       if is going to make use of the same line to reconnect.  To do this, set
       the entry for this line in the file to instead of (see inittab(4)).

       recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

	      Instruct	     to wait for a line a maximum of n number of  min‐
			     utes, if lines are busy.  If this option is spec‐
			     ified, does not query the user about  whether  to
			     wait for a line.

	      Produce detailed output from program execution
			     on	 the  standard	error  output.	This option is
			     used for debugging.  The debugging level n	 is  a
			     single digit; the most useful value is

	      Prevent	     from disconnecting ("hanging up") the current tty
			     line.  This option is necessary if	 the  user  is
			     using  a  different tty line than the one used by
			     to spawn the

	      Verbose mode.  The option is used with the option and causes  to
			     send  a  running  narrative to the standard error
			     output stream.

	      Set the data rate where
			     speed is expressed in baud.  The default rate is

       After the user on the destination terminal logs out,  prompts,  If  the
       response	 begins	 with  the  letter the line is dropped.	 Otherwise, is
       restarted and the prompt is printed.

       Of course, the destination terminal must be attached to	a  modem  that
       can automatically answer incoming calls.
