How to start a prog in another terminal ?


Hi all,

Is it possible to have a text-based prog started in a shell and executing in another shell (ie redirecting the output of the prog to another shell than the active one) ? It would be cool if it worked under KD3, by running a new 'konsole' for the output of the prog !!!

Hope someone understands my question...

Thanks !

i don't *think* there's an immediate genuine way to do it, but what you can do is to redirect the output of your program to a temporary file and then start your second terminal with "rxvt -e 'tail -f /tmp/file'" which will show that file as it grows. wrap those files up in a very small shell script and you should be fine

You can create a script that starts an xterm session. The -e switch allows you to specify any program you want to run in that xterm session. For more information, do a manpage on xterm. Hope this helps. -mk
