this message is to announce the availability of lpty 1.2. lpty is a simple interface to pty functionality, providing the ability to fork a process and run it under pty control. It does not try to mimic the posix API but instead focuses
on the function of running and controlling a program.

New since version 1.1:

- verified lua 5.3 compatibility
- added pty:setflag() method
- make the newly created pty the controlling terminal for the created session, contributed by Ard van Breemen - added separate_stderr option for pty creation, together with the readerr() and geterrfd() methods.

You can get lpty from

or via luarocks install lpty.
