Deallocate and destroy the unused virtual console /dev/ttyN. Multiple consoles may be named with additional spaces and integers: deallocvt 1 4 will deallocate the /dev/tty1 and /dev/tty4. Consoles are considered unused if they are not in the foreground, have no open processes, and have no selected text. The command will not destroy consoles that are still active.
