First off this is not a bug in NCurses. But, I thought this might be the place to find someone who knows that answer to this question related to NCurses.

I have a NCurses application running in shed out on a airport runway. I would like to view the screen that displaying currently from the comfort of a airport office via telnet. Obviously, if this was started remotely, I could check on it. However, it's something we plan to run for weeks to months at a time, so we don't really want to start it remotely. Also, there's advantages of having it display inside the shed as well.

We use to use QNX which had this command "ditto". It would allow you to temporarily take control of a particular console tty and the then release it when you're done with it. That way you could "see" the screen from another location and even make changes, and then release it. It seems quite useful for this application.

Is there anything I can do similar to this in Linux?
