Hmm, setterm is distributed on countless Slackware CD-ROMs at least...
Aren't we too paranoid about copyrights?
Now that I have read the source, it says that the "conditions of use,
modification and redistribution are contained in the file COPYRIGHT that
forms part of this distribution" but I can't find this file anywhere.
Has anyone tried to contact the author (Gordon Irlam firstname.lastname@example.org)
about this? From a quick test using EXPN it seems that his e-mail address
is probably still valid even though setterm was written in 1990...
