Index | Description | Usage | Options | Variables | Hints | Bulletproof


Internally, spawn uses a pty, initialized the same way as the user’s tty.  This is further initialized so that all settings are “sane” (according to stty(1)). 

If the variable stty_init is defined, it is interpreted in the style of stty arguments as further configuration.  For example, “set stty_init raw” will cause further spawned processes’s terminals to start in raw mode. 

  • nottycopy skips the initialization based on the user’s tty. 
  • nottyinit skips the “sane” initialization.
