IO-Tty - Pseudo ttys and constants
C<IO::Tty> is used internally by C<IO::Pty> to create a pseudo-tty.
You wouldn't want to use it directly except to import constants, use
C<IO::Pty>. For a list of importable constants, see
Windows is now supported, but ONLY under the Cygwin
environment, see L<http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/>.
Please note that pty creation is very system-dependend. From my
experience, any modern POSIX system should be fine. Find below a list
of systems that C<IO::Tty> should work on. A more detailed table
(which is slowly getting out-of-date) is available from the project
pages document manager at SourceForge
If you have problems on your system and your system is listed in the
"verified" list, you probably have some non-standard setup, e.g. you
compiled your Linux-kernel yourself and disabled ptys (bummer!).
Please ask your friendly sysadmin for help.
If your system is not listed, unpack the latest version of C<IO::Tty>,
do a C<'perl Makefile.PL; make; make test; uname -a'> and send me
(F<RGiersig@cpan.org>) the results and I'll see what I can deduce from
that. There are chances that it will work right out-of-the-box...
If it's working on your system, please send me a short note with
details (version number, distribution, etc. 'uname -a' and 'perl -V'
is a good start; also, the output from "perl Makefile.PL" contains a
lot of interesting info, so please include that as well) so I can get
an overview. Thanks!
