The sample application WebTTY was written to illustrate the usage of the TestApe unit test framework when testing native Linux applications

The WebTTY package allows any Linux terminal processes to be controlled in a text area HTML element on a webpage. The output from the server process is collected on server side, and is send to a text area element. Keypresses in textarea are collected on client side and send to the server process. WebTTY uses AJAX/DHTML patterns to achieve in-page updates without refreshing the entire page.

The package was developed to illustrate unit testing with the TestApe framework. It turned out to be a very useful demo application.
