       open_init_pty - run an program under a pseudo terminal


       open_init_pty SCRIPT [[ARGS]...]


       Run  a  program  under a pseudo terminal. This is used by run_init to run actually run the
       program after setting up the proper context. This program acquires a new Pseudo  terminal,
       forks a child process that binds to the pseudo terminal, and then sits around and connects
       the physical terminal it was invoked upon with the pseudo terminal, passing keyboard input
       into  to  the  child  process, and passing the output of the child process to the physical

       It sets up the pseudo terminal properly based on the  physical  terminal  attributes,  and
       then sets the user's terminal to RAW mode, taking care to reset it on exit.
