IO::Tty and IO::Pty provide an interface to pseudo tty's
To build this distribution, run
This version (v1.08) now adds posix_openpt() as a means of allocating
the pty, thanks goes to Ed Schouten who provided a patch.
Please note that pty creation is very system-dependend, and there
are a *lot* of different systems out there. If you have problems
on your system, please send me (<RGiersig@cpan.org>) the output
of a manual installation ('perl Makefile.PL; make; make test;')
and I'll see what I can deduce from it.
Supported systems include Linux, Solaris, AIX, OSF, *BSD, IRIX, HP-UX
Windows is supported only under the Cygwin environment, see
Sorry, ActiveState Perl on Windows is NOT supported, basically
because there are no pseudo-terminals under Windows.
If it's working on your system, please send me a short note with
details (version number, distribution, etc. 'uname -a' and 'perl -V'
is a good start; also, the output from "perl Makefile.PL" contains a
lot of interesting info, so please include that as well) so I can get
an overview. Thanks!
See the ChangeLog and the docs for details.
Oh, and many thanks to all testers, without their support this project
would still be limited to a few systems that I have access to. Thanks
also to SourceForge (http://sf.net) who is hosting this and many other
projects, their services have made development and support a real
pleasure. If you intend to donate something to the Open Source cause,
think about lending them a machine with a commercial OS license for
their compile farm!
