Controlling a TTY via screen positionby mutt (Novice)
|on Dec 12, 2008 at 17:16 UTC||Need Help??|
mutt has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to automate a session which uses 5250 emulation. This (that I'm aware of) cannot be achieved through traditional means like Net::Telnet or anything due to the nature of the protocol.
I want to spawn a console app (such as tn5250) and then use screen positions to input and read text.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get started.
Term::Cap just writes plainly to a terminal. IO:Pty doesn't seem to fit
I'm simply lost for the moment. I was hoping for a nudge in the right direction.
