NAME

       chvt - change foreground virtual terminal

SYNOPSIS

       chvt N

DESCRIPTION

       The  command  chvt  N  makes  /dev/ttyN  the foreground terminal.  (The
       corresponding screen is created if it did not exist yet.  To get rid of
       unused  VTs,  use deallocvt(1).)  The key combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN
       (with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
