Hi, Barry!

You can download ttyfier sources from here:

There was certainly some bit-rot in it since 2001. Moreover, i've added
some new functionality, such as ability to access 'ttyfied' program from
 xterm window, but it's somewhat experimental at the moment, and relies
on unicode version of ncurses library -- libncursesw, which, AFAICT, was
never officialy released for cygwin.

I'm going to revisit ttyfier this week to see if anything needs fixing
for recent cygwin. Feel free to build it yourself and ask any questions
about it.
