is a utility for calculating VESA Coordinated Video Timing modes. Given the

standard is printed. This modeline can be included in Xorg
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
Create a mode with reduced blanking. This allows for higher frequency signals,
