>>> termios.TIOCGWINSZ
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  AttributeError: 'termios' module has no attribute 'TIOCGWINSZ'
>>> TERMIOS.TIOCGWINSZ
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  AttributeError: 'TERMIOS' module has no attribute 'TIOCGWINSZ'
