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 xorg.conf(5)
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 standards.
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
