Description

Provide an implementation of libutempter, allowing the programs to register utmpx records via somewhat standard API. There no consumers in the gate, but as implementation is pretty OS-specific, we could ship it as part of illumos.

Examples of consumers are tmux, screen, and xterm.

History

#1

Updated by Yuri Pankov 6 months ago

For testing, I have built tmux and screen with utempter support, and checked that `w` reports all active panes in its output.
