# pty.py -- Pseudo terminal utilities.

# Bugs: No signal handling.  Doesn't set slave termios and window size.
#	Only tested on Linux.
# See:  W. Richard Stevens. 1992.  Advanced Programming in the 
#	UNIX Environment.  Chapter 19.
# Author: Steen Lumholt -- with additions by Guido.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
