rePTYr - Re-parent a running process to a new TTY


This one's going to be fun...
reptyr - A tool for "re-ptying" programs.
reptyr is a utility for taking an existing running program and attaching it to a new terminal. Started a long-running process over ssh, but have to leave and don't want to interrupt it? Just start a screen, use reptyr to grab it, and then kill the ssh session and head on home.

That sounds pretty handy!  Thanks for sharing :)

Just tried it with some success.

Remember those times when somehow you can't get back to your X session, but there's something running in a terminal you'd like to interact with or see?  Looks like this could work -- a quick test suggests it might work sometimes.

On a side-note, AFAICT, this is Linux-only.
