Low-level library for creating PTYs and getting related properties. Aimed to be cross platform, and so far has Unix and Redox OS support.
I know there are lots of crates for opening PTYs, but I really wanted to make my own.
Key features of this one:
- Low-level. You get access to the file handles directly.
- Comes bundled with related features, like setting the terminal to raw mode.
- Redox OS support from the start
If you've seen the docs, you'll notice there are stuff like
WinsizeSetter. This is a part of the design that makes Redox OS support
special. In redox, when setting the window size you need to do the following:
- Open a file that controls the window size
- Get the window size
- (Close the file?)
- (Reopen the file?)
- Set the window size
- Close the file
What pseudoterm does is let you get/set without opening/closing the file each time.
