This patch adds the ability to spawn a new terminal with ssh awareness, meaning that if your current selected client has an open ssh sesion, a newly created client will copy the ssh command and execute it. The spawning also carries over additional flags you have given to ssh. If your current client does not have an ssh session it executes the provided command.

It works by crawling all of the processes for ssh sessions and traversing the process tree upwards to check if your current client is a parent of an ssh session.

This patch borrows the winpid function from the swallow patch. My thanks to:




Since the patch relies on walking the process tree, which is OS-specific, compatibility with other operating systems is not guaranteed. If you want to help expand the list of supported plattforms please contact me.
