It's a shame that such a nice little program is marred by its total lack of commentation, along with poorly chosen function and variable names. The use of tabs in the source code isn't particularly desirable either, IMO.

There's probably a good argument to be made in favor of some other
formatting style; you just need to make it.

I felt similar regarding the commentation at first, but then I read
through DVTM & found that what st was doing was self evident.

'st' is proving to be a nice addition, and a good starting point for building something even better. Looking forward to integrating more of your code into my system as I spend more time exploring your different projects, and the useful patches you've provided. Thanks for your work.

If you really wanted to dab on st, you could have just
- removed the `-l` argument
- simplified ttywriteraw
- suggested that st shouldn't be scheduling for modem lines
- offer minicom as an alternative for those lead astray

But clearly you're too retarded to make a decent critisism like that. ;)
