NAME

       deallocvt - deallocate unused virtual consoles

SYNOPSIS

       deallocvt [N ...]

DESCRIPTION

       The command deallocvt deallocates kernel memory and data structures for
       all unused virtual consoles.  If one  or  more  arguments  N  ...   are
       given, only the corresponding consoles /dev/ttyN are deallocated.

       A virtual console is unused if it is not the foreground console, and no
       process has it open for reading  or  writing,  and  no  text  has  been
       selected on its screen.
