IO::Tty and IO::Pty provide an interface to pseudo tty's To build this distribution, run perl Makefile.PL make make test make install 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-dependent, 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 and Darwin. Windows is supported only under the Cygwin environment, see http://www.cygwin.com/. 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! Roland <RGiersig@cpan.org> 2009-02-23
