If that was possible, It will be a BIG security hole in unix.

I've never said it's secure, it's simply possible. But yes, It's dangerous, though.

It's very simple, i am using KBtin to play MUD.
Adam Borowski ( developer of KBtin) has made a mapper utility for KBtin, however it is executed in the same screen window (you need to type map to display it). I wish to made this a bit more practical. My plan is to open two telnet sessions (i ssh to a coledge server) and monitor two screen windows (screen -x). While i play on one screen window i have a map that tracks my movement on another screen window (something like Zmud under windows).

In order to do this i need a way to send commands from window where i play to window that should display the map.

I am not trying to break security here, just trying to make something new that many of my friends would find useful.

Thanks!

Also, i am not trying to send commands to another person's terminal. I wish to send them to another window under my screen session (the screen utility under unix).
