Lxrun - Linux Emulator

Lxrun is a user-space program that allows users of SCO(r) OpenServer(tm), UnixWare(tm), and Sun(r) Solaris(tm) x86 operating systems to run ELF and a.out format Linux(R) binaries. It was originally written by Mike Davidson of SCO, and is now maintained as a Skunkware project.

(R) Linux is a trademark or registered trademark of Linus Torvalds in Australia, Germany, Japan, the United States, and other countries.

Extended Call Utility

ECU (Extended Call Utility) is a research and engineering communications program originally written for users of SCO UNIX V.3.2/386 and XENIX V on 80286 and 80386 systems. Support for other systems has been added and further porting is possible with "minor" effort to other systems based on or similar to UNIX System V. This preliminary document describes ECU functionality and implementation from a technical point of view and provides at least rudimentary documentation for its features and commands.

ECU provides the classic terminal communications facility of passing keyboard data to a serial line (or a telnet TCP/IP connection if configured) and incoming data to the computer video display. In addition, a dialing directory, a function key mapping feature, and session logging are available.

A very flexible procedure (script) language is also incorporated to automate many communications tasks. In addition to augmenting interactive tasks, by using shell scripts and ECU procedures, ECU can perform batch-style communications sessions in an entirely "unattended" fashion. Because of limitations of my nroff program, the procedure language is described in a separate document.

ECU presents to the host a flexible "ANSI" terminal type, accepting any valid video control sequences from MS-DOS or SCO documentation as of late 1990. It also fares well, though imperfectly, with Sun and VT-100 in-band video control sequences. You may disable the ANSI filter if you wish. Standards are great: everybody should have one, especially if

they call it "ANSI." For more information, refer to the section below titled "ANSI Filter."

The program supports almost any local terminal (console) which can be described in a termcap database entry. A robust terminfo or termcap description is required for your local console to use ANSI emulation. For more information, refer to "Supported Terminals."

ECU supports numerous file transfer protocols: as of this writing, XMODEM, XMODEM/CRC, XMODEM-1K, YMODEM/CRC Batch, ZMODEM/CRC-16, ZMODEM/CRC-32, and Kermit are supported. For more information, refer to the sections describing the individual interactive and procedure file transfer commands.

VT102 terminal emulator

rxvt - version 2.4.5 - is a color vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt uses much less swap space - a significant advantage on a machine serving many X sessions.

In order to update the utmp entry, the rxvt binary needs to have write permission on /etc/utmp. In order to accomplish this, it can be installed "setuid root". On some platforms, it is sufficient to install it "setgid adm".
