dvtm is a dynamic virtual terminal manager.
Edit config.mk to match your local setup (dvtm is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).
Afterwards enter the following command to build and install dvtm (if necessary as root). If you are building for a system with wide characters (check whether $LANG or the output of "locale" contains UTF-8) then do:
make unicode && make install
Otherwise a plain:
make && make install
Just run dvtm from the console, redirect stderr to a file (just in case something goes wrong you will see it there).
dvtm 2> log
If you want to display a one line status bar you can create a named pipe and pass it's name to dvtm via it's -s command line option. Make sure that the pipe remains open until dvtm is closed, see the included dvtm-status script as an example.
The configuration of dvtm is done by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code.
- Changes include AIX support, a Cygwin compile fix, terminal emulation correctness fixes, and some minor code cleanups here and there.
