NAME

       fgconsole - print the number of the active VT.

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       If the active VT 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 virtual terminals are
              allocated, with number 7 used for X; this will return "8" in this case.
