I understand what you mean. setterm outputs an escape code like:


only when the TERM is "con" or "linux".

The parameter 9 is for "set blanking interval".

This escape sequence is used by setterm_command() in the Linux kernel's
linux/drivers/char/console.c which does a poke_blanked_console().

I wonder if there is a tool to directly call those kernel functions?
