[erlang-questions] pseudoterminal port process

Thank you for all the responses.  runpty from lux is the direction that I
had in mind (https://github.com/hawk/lux/blob/master/c_src/runpty.c)

Tony seems curious as to what I'm trying to do, so here it is:

We have an embedded system that uses unix accounts, OpenSSH, and an C++
ncurses program for the user interface.  For a variety or reasons, we want
to get away from unix accounts and go with application-level accounts in
much the same way that a typical web app would do.  OpenSSH does not appear
to support that account model but Erlang SSH can, hence my need for full
pseudoterminal support.

Thanks again,
Dan.
