Cvt is a utility for calculating VESA Coordinated Video Timing modes.
Given the desired horizontal and vertical resolutions, a modeline
adhering to the CVT standard is printed. This modeline can be included
in Xorg xorg.conf(5)
refresh Provide a vertical refresh rate in kHz. The CVT standard
prefers either 50.0, 60.0, 75.0 or 85.0kHz. The default is
Warn verbosely when a given mode does not completely correspond
with CVT standards.
Create a mode with reduced blanking. This allows for higher
frequency signals, with a lower or equal dotclock. Not for
Cathode Ray Tube based displays though.
This program is based on the Coordinated Video Timing sample
implementation written by Graham Loveridge. This file is publicly
