Yes, when I open a terminal or login in text mode
via Telnet or SSh, the terminals ID is /dev/pts/1
In Sco Openserver it was /dev/tty01

My goal is to use tty's devices when I execute in a terminal
and old SCO text application under Centos using linux_abi
who stcck to identify a tty and getting is definition
thru /etc/inittab and /etc/ttytype

I understand these above lines, but want to operate with tty's for this 
application
