  Description     : A tool for moving running programs between ptys

reptyr is a utility for taking an existing running program and
attaching it to a new terminal, and is particularly useful for moving
a long-running process into a GNU screen session.

reptyr does a more thorough job of transferring programs than many
other tools, including the popular "screenify" shell script, because
it changes the program's controlling terminal. This means that actions
such as window resizes and interrupts are sent to the process from the
new terminal.
