[clug] Programmable title

The following works (in the fish shell configuration file). I have 
tested it by substituting "xyz" instead of "pts", to simulate the 
terminal type being "tty".

function fish_title
     echo $_ 'shell'
     if test (tty | cut -c 6-8) = 'pts'
         echo ' pseudo'
     echo ' terminal on line '
     echo (tty) | cut -c 10-

Can anyone advise me how to open a shell terminal using a "tty" type 
session, as opposed to the usual "pts"? I noticed that the Links2 Web 
browser opened a "tty" type session.
