NAME
       deallocvt - deallocate unused virtual terminals

SYNOPSIS
       deallocvt [ N1 N2 ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       If  given  no  argument, the program deallocvt deallocates
       kernel memory and data structures for all  unused  virtual
       terminals.    If   arguments  Ni  are  given,  only  TTY's
       /dev/ttyNi are deallocated.

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