Cvt is a utility for calculating VESA Coordinated Video Timing modes.
Given the desired horizontal and vertical resolutions, a modeline adhering to
the CVT standard is printed. This modeline can be included in Xorg
- Provide a vertical refresh rate in Hz. The CVT standard prefers either
50.0, 60.0, 75.0 or 85.0Hz. The default is 60.0Hz.
- Warn verbosely when a given mode does not completely correspond with CVT
- Create a mode with reduced blanking. This allows for higher frequency
signals, with a lower or equal dotclock. Not for Cathode Ray Tube based
This program is based on the Coordinated Video Timing sample
implementation written by Graham Loveridge. This file is publicly available
