Virtual terminals


2 questions:

1.) How can I redirect the output of a program to a virtual terminal?
2.) After logging into my machine remotely (via SSH), how can I "look at" the same VT receiving output in #1?

Welcome to LQ.

1) The safest way would be to write out to a fifo and read from the fifo in the other terminal
2) Try using screen.
