summary: Terminal emulation in Plink
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: never: We don't ever intend to fix this.

Plink is designed as a data transport tool, and is not intended for interactive use; as such it performs no interpretation on the data it transfers.

However, people occasionally ask for an option in Plink to handle terminal escape codes, so that you get `PuTTY in a console window'.

Unless there's some good reason why running PuTTY full-screen isn't enough to address this wish, we're unlikely to consider it worth the extra effort and code bloat.

Perhaps it's possible to augment the Windows console with terminal emulation capabilities à la ANSI.SYS?
