The tty Layer
We have covered the basics of the tty layer, explaining all of the different fields in the tty_driver structure for the 2.4 kernel tree and pointing out which ones are necessary for a driver to implement. The tiny_tty.c driver, see Listing 3 [available at ftp.linuxjournal.com/pub/lj/listings/issue100/5896.tgz], is a good example of a very minimal tty driver that successfully works. Feel free to use this code as an example for your own tty drivers in the future.
