I'll try to dig it up. The application for which I was trying
to use ptys needed to communication modem control/status line
state info between master and slave (as well as parity and
word-length settings), so I abandoned ptys when I found they
only implement a small subset of the icotl's that are defined
for tty devices.
I've proposed enhancing the Linux pty driver so that it can
actually be used to simulate a serial port, but the proposal
has been ignored so far.
