Meaning of CTY

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/sit'ee/ or /C-T-Y/ [MIT] The terminal physically associated with a computer's system console. The term is a contraction of "Console tty", that is, "Console TeleTYpe". This its- and tops-10-associated term has become less common, as most Unix hackers simply refer to the CTY as "the console".
