Yes, "test -t" does appear to work under BeOS R4.5:

   $ /bin/sh
   sh-2.02# test -t 0; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 1; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 2; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 3; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 0 < /dev/null; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 1 > /dev/null; echo $?
   sh-2.02# test -t 2 2> /dev/null; echo $?
