Terminal Emulator using SDL


It would be great if there was a terminal emulator application that used SDL.
Basically all I want to do is open a terminal, however, this is on an embedded device, and the only form of output available to me is the linux framebuffer (or ssh/serial, but I want to use the LCD). I have SDL installed already.

Actually, if there is an application that uses the framebuffer device directly, that would be fine too. I just think its odd that there are so many terminal emulators already, but none of them use SDL.

Nope, not quite. I saw that, but its not an application, its a library. If I was going to write my own application, I probably would start from scratch, but I don't really feel like doing that right now. I'm looking for a terminal emulator application that runs with SDL (like xterm, but SDLterm instead).

(I have searched google, I did not find anything.)
