chvt - change foreground virtual terminal


   chvt N


   The  command  chvt  N  makes  /dev/ttyN  the foreground terminal.  (The
   corresponding screen is created if it did not exist yet.  To get rid of
   unused  VTs,  use deallocvt(1).)  The key combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN
   (with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
