term(n) 0.1 tcllib "Terminal control"


term - General terminal control


  • package require Tcl 8.4
  • package require term ?0.1?


It is planned to have this package provide highlevel general terminal control commands, in the vein of ncurses or similar packages. Currently nothing has been implemented however. I.e. this package is empty. It can be loaded, yet provides nothing.
