With this patch, instances of pdb.Pdb can read and
write from arbitrary file objects. It is based on
similar changes that have been made to It
basically consists of replacing print statement with
calls to self.stdout.write.

So it is possible for example to control the debugger
from another terminal to debug curses-based
applications or CGI scripts.

I can provide a basic client/server debugger.

This patch has been tested on Mandrake Linux 9.1 with
the current CVS version.

I think this is a good idea.
It is past the the time for being added to 2.3.
Unassigning, but will come back to it for 2.4.

lpelecq, would you be willing to redo that patch for 2.5?
Using print redirection (instead of .write calls) might be
the easiest way to do it.

rhettinger, do you want to come back to this patch now? If
not, please unassign.
