A Helpful TTY (ah-tty)
|Synopsis:||Ah-tty is an automatic helper for command prompts and shells.|
|The audience:||All shell users. Primarily this is for novice shell users who would like (or need) feed back and advice about the command they are trying to use or want to use. This is also appreciated by some advanced users who enjoy the information it provides about the subtle features in the shell language and cognitive aids (tricks', and spellings of commands).|
|Implementation:||Internally ah-tty is a terminal emulator with a lookup engine. The terminal emulator portion is responsible for manage the display and user input. This input is matched against patterns in a database. The matching patterns trigger the display of appropriate messages.|
