wscons -- machine-independent console support
The wscons driver provides a machine-independent framework for worksta-
tion consoles. It consists of several cooperating modules:
· display adapters (see wsdisplay(9))
· keyboards (see wskbd(9))
· pointers and mice (see wsmouse(9))
· input event multiplexor
· font handling (see wsfont(9))
· terminal emulation (see wsdisplay(9))
The wscons framework replaces the old rcons workstation framework and the
various machine-dependent console implementations.
This section describes places within the NetBSD source tree where actual
code implementing or using the machine-independent wscons subsystem can
be found. All pathnames are relative to /usr/src.
The wscons subsystem is implemented within the directory sys/dev/wscons.
