./misc/teseq, Terminal control sequence analyzer

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.1.1nb2, Package name: teseq-1.1.1nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GNU Teseq is a tool for translating files that contain control
characters and terminal control sequences, into human-understandable
text. It is intended to aid in debugging problems in terminal
emulators, software that makes use of special terminal features, and
interactions between the two.

Teseq is primarily targeted at individuals who possess a basic
understanding of terminal control sequences, especially CSI sequences;
however, by default Teseq will try to identify and describe the
sequences that it encounters, and the behavior they might produce in a

Teseq describes control functions as they are interpreted by
VT100-compatible terminals, and/or terminals compliant with the ECMA-48 /
ISO/IEC 6429 standard. Teseq does _not_ support describing control
functions according to terminal-specific definitions in a database such
as termcap or terminfo, though future versions may include limited
support for that (*note Future Enhancements::). Therefore, the
descriptions Teseq uses for control functions may not necessarily match
their actual interpretation by whatever terminal device the characters
were actually intended for.

Update to 1.1.1:

Version 1.1.1

* Updated all files to reflect new email address for maintainer:
  micah@addictivecode.org (previous address, micah@cowan.name, is no
  longer valid)

* Added links in the (Texinfo) manual to playable videos that
  demonstrate basic teseq functionality, and how to use teseq to create
  _and edit_ interactive terminal demos:

  * https://asciinema.org/a/7443
  * https://asciinema.org/a/7445

* Added example in the manual for using teseq to strip escapes out of a
  typescript file.

* Note: a new (optional) build dependency has been introduced:
  pkg-config, which is now used to find whether libcheck is installed.

* BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where teseq could spin indefinitely churning
  out \xFF bytes on no further input. Input from a command such as
    $ printf '\033!!\177'
  would produce this issue.

  This issue was discovered by means of american fuzzy lop,

* BUG FIX: Fixed an issue with \x7F (DEL) being treated as a valid final
  character for control sequences, and being printed on teseq's output
  (which should not be printing non-whitespace control characters).

Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that
* mention perl, or
* have a directory name starting with p5-*, or
* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.

Log message:
Update to 1.1. Changes:

* Colorized output now supported via the --color (or --colour) option,
  and the TESEQ_COLORS environment variable.
* Descriptions and labels for non-standard controls from DEC, Xterm,
  Rxvt, etc, are now always issued, without the need for the -x option.

  for keypress before continuing.
* Teseq now identifies which charset is being switched, by its ISO IR
* BUG FIX: Teseq could crash on the input, `\033$z'.
