pyqonsole(1) VT102 emulator written in Python and PyQt3


pyqonsole [executable]


pyqonsole is a VT-102 emulator which can be used as a replacement for an X terminal emulator, though it will be slower and use more memory than a traditional X terminal emulator. Its main purpose is to provide a VT-102 emulator widget for Python programmers.

By default, it will launch the current user's shell (based on /etc/passwd) or bash, if no information is available in /etc/passwd. An executable name can be specified on the command line, in which case, it will be run in the emulator.


pyqonsole accepts a few options, mainly for development and debugging purposes. Use -h to see them.
