in reply to Perl Programming Tools - (who, what, where, when, and why)

My workstation is Linux. Accessing a unix server via a good xterm (aterm in my case) is easy. Sometimes, I have to work on Windows workstations and accessing unix servers is terrible. Is there anything, at a reasonable price, that is as useable as a good X xterm but for Windows?

    One word: cygwin. It has X Windows, including xterms for Windows.

      ++ to cygwin. For those occasions when I have to work on Windows boxes (mostly for testing), cygwin helped me keep my sanity.

      Also, cygwin can be installed without X windows too. And, it comes with rxvt (xterm compatible) and ssh which can be nicely used together to log in to *nix boxen. All without the overhead of X-windows (it was pretty slow to work with xterm in cygwin's X-window environment on Windows).

      Another bonus is that cygwin comes with sshd too, and I have set it up on my win2k box, so if I am not using any windows graphical applications, I can just ssh into my windows box from my linux box.

    You might like to give PuTTY a try -- it is really worth it. It is the best ssh client for windows I am aware of, is free software/open source and able to send all of the special characters over. Of course it also supports ansi colors. Give it a try, if you need a good terminal emulation for windows which supports both ssh and telnet (useful for reading websites *gg*), you won't regret it.
