When I ls -al /devices/pseudo, I see one entry which I’m not able to understand.

crw—w——  1 8888 tty 24,  58. Apr 11 2016 pts@0:58

Can someone please explain each column for me?

Thanks a lot.


One thing you can try is to run a command like tail:

tail -f /dev/ttys000

then in another terminal type 
#echo hello >> /dev/ttys000

and you will see it print out.

As special chars get involved here... it is going to goof your screen, though.
