The VTE library inserts terminal capability strings into a trie, and then
uses it to determine if data received from a pseudo-terminal is a control
sequence or just random data. The sample program "interpret" illustrates
more or less what the widget sees after it filters incoming data.
* What is VTE?
VTE is a library (libvte) implementing a terminal emulator widget for GTK+,
and a minimal sample application (vte) using that. Vte is mainly used in
gnome-terminal, but can also be used to embed a console/terminal in games,
editors, IDEs, etc.
VTE supports Unicode and character set conversion, as well as emulating any
terminal known to the system's terminfo database.
