Python to the rescue (Or, How Hard could it Possibly Be)

Monday October 17, 2005
So these terminal programs suck, right? They get basic configuration options wrong, they crash a lot. I need a higher availability terminal.

Well, the underlying widget seems to work OK so long as you don't drive it too hard, so, I wrote my own "terminal" by just trivially invoking libvte from Python.

So here it is, HATE, the High Availability Terminal Emulator.

Blah blah, no warranty - if you use this my agents will hunt you down and kill you.
