A Utility to loopback Pseudo-Terminals

Official package sites : ·

Pseudo-Terminals (ptys) are a type of interprocess communication with a master and a slave end. One program (in our case nullmodem) opens the master sides of connections and therefore provides connectible slave sides of connections. If nullmodem receives some data on one of these connections it retransmits them on all other connections. It can be seen as a network with star-type wiring. Because the names of the slave side ptys are dynamic, nullmodem creates symbolic links to filenames of your choice. e.g. the command nullmodem /tmp/loop0 /tmp/loop1 /tmp/loop2 creates a pty-network with 3 slave sides linked to the names /tmp/loop0, /tmp/loop1 and /tmp/loop2. If you close a slave side connection nullmodem will detect this and provide a new stub to connect to and update the symbolic link.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
