FGCONSOLE(1)		      Linux User's Manual		  FGCONSOLE(1)

NAME
       fgconsole - print the number of the active VT.

SYNOPSIS
       fgconsole [--help|--version|--next-available]

DESCRIPTION
       If  the active Virtual Terminal is /dev/ttyN, then prints N on standard
       output.

       If the console is a serial console, then "serial" is printed instead.

       --next-available
	      Will show the next unallocated virtual terminal. Normally 6 vir‐
	      tual  terminals  are  allocated,	with number 7 used for X; this
	      will return "8" in this case.

NOTES
       Under devfs, the consoles are in /dev/vc/N.  devfsd may	maintain  sym‐
       links for compatibility.
