       open_init_pty - run an program under a psuedo terminal

       open_init_pty SCRIPT [[ARGS]...]

       Run  a program under a psuedo terminal. This is used by run_init to run
       actually run the program after setting up the proper context. This pro
       gram  acquires  a new Psuedo terminal, forks a child process that binds
       to the psueado terminal, and then sits around and connects the physical
       terminal it was invoked upon with the pseudo terminal, passing keyboard
       input into to the child process, and passing the output	of  the  child
       process to the physical terminal.

       It  sets up the pseudo terminal properly based on the physical terminal
       attributes, and then sets the users terminal to RAW mode, taking  care
       to reset it on exit.
