dvtm gives VT/Console tiling: small & cheap.
« on: April 28, 2017, 05:13:27 AM »
Any non trivial task needs to allow multiple files
to be viewable and accessed on the same screen.
wily is superb for this under <X>.

Under <console/VT>:
 sudo su
 REPEATED: openvt
gives you a chain of <root terminals>.

But for a project that uses 3 or 4 files, switching
between terminals is problematic. dvtm help.
Right now, I've got 3 "tiles" opened by dvtm in a
single VT. While I'm writing this I can read browse
and paste from/to different files.

Apparently I previously fetched:
  dvtm_0.6-1_amd64.deb  == only 28K
but wasn't able to install it.

-> ldd /mnt/sdb2/CRG/DVTM/tmp/usr/bin/dvtm
 linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffe5a128000)
 libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007fe55ecfc000)
 libutil.so.1 => /lib/libutil.so.1 (0x00007fe55eaf9000)
 libncursesw.so.5 => /usr/local/lib/libncursesw.so.5 (0x00007fe55e8ac000)
 /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x000055b7719b0000)
 libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007fe55e69a000)
shows many dependencies. But it runs.

So: cp /mnt/sdb2/CRG/DVTM/tmp/usr/bin/dvtm /usr/local/sbin
[via pasting from other tiles]
?! let's see what happens when dvtm is called from
INSIDE an already running dvtm ?!
Difficult to explain.
BTW on modern wide-screen laptops, 2 tiles gives
 2 of 480X640: "traditional" apps.

Why don't you compile dvtm on tc, I doubt it would be difficult

Did I mention that it runs, when I put the binary in the correct place.
--------------
Because this crappy [like my gmail] html-based [so that the FB/twitter
kiddies can see pictures] forum can't keep <threads> like the more
appropriate NNTP technology, of decades ago, which was *DESIGNED* for
the job: I can't easly know what was previously written.
-- I can't cope with my owm tasks, and resist opening another can-o-worms
to try to compile-to-tcz! I've done my job by testing/describing the app.

There is a proper forum thread to request extensions.
The other option is to compile it yourself and make an extension.

My simple HAK works for me.
And dvtm is probably not wanted by current users. They want pictures.
Why else whould they replace competent NNTP, by flipant http.
