Here’s a thought. IN QNX4 wasn’t there a Dev.ditto (maybe I don’t remember
the name of the utility) that could be used on systems that don’t have a
video card. The gimick was that you could use this instead of Dev.con to
included ditto’able consoles in a system with no video card.
Could Dev.ditto be ported to RTP? That way we could just use it instead of
real hardware console.
The important attribute that I (and I think others) are looking for is a
byte bucket that programs can write data to that that won’t take up much CPU
cycles and that no program must watch. But any program (with appropriate
privledge) may look at from time to time, ala ditto, prtsc, console_read(),
A pipe won’t work because it requires a reader and can’t be shared by two
A file won’t work because it will grow too large.

Hi all -
Can anyone tell me where ditto is in QNX 6.1 or where I can find it?
have been using the command ‘ph -c’ in QNX 4.25 to open Photon with a
pterm window showing what is sent to the console. I am just recently
upgrading to 6.1. When I try to type ‘ph -c’ in QNX 6.1 after I log
I get a screen saying:
Cannot start program ‘ditto’
(no such file or directory)
When I search for ditto in the helpviewer, I find a couple of pages
saying that ditto is described in the QNX 6 Utilities Reference, but I
cannot find it. Is it possibly in a package that I have not
Any ideas anyone has would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
