Twin - a Textmode WINdow environment, by Massimiliano Ghilardi
--------------------------------------------------------------

Version 0.6.2

Twin is a windowing environment with mouse support, window manager,
terminal emulator and networked clients, all inside a text display.

It supports a variety of displays:
* plain text terminals (any termcap/ncurses compatible terminal,
Linux console, twin's own terminal emulator);
* X11, where it can be used as a multi-window xterm;
* itself (you can display a twin on another twin);
* twdisplay, a general network-transparent display client, used
to attach/detach more displays on-the-fly.

Currently, twin is tested on Linux (i386, PowerPC, Alpha, Sparc)
and on FreeBSD; SunOS porting is in progress.
I had yet no chance to seriously test it on other systems.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Documentation


Twin comes with the following documentation:

README This file.
README.CVS Hints to build twin from CVS repository (for developers).
README.porting Tips and warnings to compile twin on unsupported OSes.
COPYING License: twin server and clients are GPL'ed software.
COPYING.LIB Library license: libTutf, libTw, libTT are LGPL'ed.
Changelog.txt List of all changes between the various versions of twin.
BUGS Known bugs.
INSTALL Quick compile/install guide.
system.twinrc A detailed example of ~/.twinrc look-n-feel configuration file.


The docs/ subdirectory contains additional documentation:

Configure Description of twin configuration script with the meaning
of every single option.
Tutorial A quite complete tour of twin features: the user interface,
how to use twin clients, compression, attaching/detaching
displays, fonts. It also contains installation instructions
and some caveats for system administrators.
libTw.txt a reference file for programmers who want to write
twin clients (INCOMPLETE).
libTw++.txt a reference file for programmers who want to write
twin C++ clients (INCOMPLETE).

Getting twin


Since you are reading this README, you probably already have it,
anyway twin can be downloaded from

https://github/com/cosmos72/twin


--------------------------------------------------------------
Building and installing twin

For the impatient, it basically reduces to
./configure
make
make install

To compile twin you need the following programs installed
on your system:

* recent GNU make (versions <= 3.76.1 do not to work)

* ANSI C compiler (gcc for example)


But of course you may want to know more details:
First, you might want to edit the files `makerules.in' and `makeautoconf.in'
to change the install directory, tweak compiler flags (enable debugging), etc.

First you may want to tweak the configuration options, install directory,
compiler flags, etc. generated by `./configure'; this is possible with
`./configure [options]' or `scripts/Configure.sh [configuration options]'

For instructions about compiling and installing twin, see the file `Tutorial',
sections 3 and 4, distributed with twin in the docs/ subdirectory.


For a discussion about MANUALLY configuring twin (almost never necessary),
see the help file `Configure', again in the docs/ subdirectory.
-- WARNING: if you manually enable options that were disabled by `./configure',
build will almost certainly fail! --
