tty

Return user's terminal name

Syntax
      tty [-s]

Options
   -s	     Don't write the terminal name; only the exit status is affected
	     when this option is specified.  The -s option is deprecated in
	     favor of the `test -t 0' command.    

Tty exits 0 if the standard input is a terminal, 1 if the standard input is not a terminal, and >1 if an error occurs.
