./sysutils/py-ptyprocess, Run a subprocess in a pseudo terminal

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.5.1, Package name: py27-ptyprocess-0.5.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Launch a subprocess in a pseudo terminal (pty), and interact with both
the process and its pty.

Sometimes, piping stdin and stdout is not enough. There might be a
password prompt that doesn’t read from stdin, output that changes when
it’s going to a pipe rather than a terminal, or curses-style
interfaces that rely on a terminal. If you need to automate these
things, running the process in a pseudo terminal (pty) is the answer.
