The vk-posix-pty package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program]

This package simplifies the creation of subprocesses that interact with their parent via a pseudo terminal (see man pty).

Included ptywrap utility spawns a process with a pty, forwards its output to stdout as plain text without buffering and forwards the exit code. Note that it does not handle standard input.

ptywrap: usage: ptywrap [command to run]
