ptmx(4), oh my

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 7:48 PM

In my never ending quest to know everything there is to know about Unix system programming, I learned something new today: man ptmx(4) for the gory details.


  1. the day i learned about seq(1) was a happy day indeed.

  2. Terminals…
    An old idea of mine was to turn screen(1) into a library, so that you can embed terminals in your curses application, and be able to (for example) run vi in a window of your mutt. Never got around to it, though.

  3. You’ve caught a pretty tough draw but you may still make it through…
    Champion’s League
    Bayern Munich (Germany)
    Juventus (Italy)
    Ajax Amsterdam (Holland)
    Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel)
    Could have been worse, could have drawn Group D with Manchester United 🙂

    • Oh wait a minute, you’re Maccabi Haifa
      Strike that. You probably HATE Maccabi Tel Aviv even though they are neighbors.
