 sorry...  what i was trying to say is the GEMDOS tty stuff just isn't,
well, good enough to be of much use really.  maybe the lib should try to
`emulate' and hack around all the TOS problems somehow, okay (i just
looked at what the gnulib does for ttys... libsrc87.zoo) but currently
it doesn't and i can understand why.

 i think the MiNT library is designed to work without MiNT, but not to
fix everything thats broken without MiNT...

 ok?  cheers,
