Description : drive multiple xterms separately or together
Multixterm creates multiple xterms that can be driven together or
In its simplest form, multixterm is run with no arguments and commands are
interactively entered in the first entry field. Press return (or click the
"new xterm" button) to create a new xterm running that command.
Keystrokes in the "stdin window" are redirected to all xterms started by
multixterm. xterms may be driven separately simply by focusing on them.
The stdin window must have the focus for keystrokes to be sent to the
xterms. When it has the focus, the color changes to aquamarine. As
characters are entered, the color changes to green for a second. This
provides feedback since characters are not echoed in the stdin window.
Typing in the stdin window while holding down the alt or meta keys sends an
escape character before the typed characters. This provides support for
programs such as emacs.
