DESCRIPTION
       WARNING:	 This package is unix-specific and depends on the availability
       of two unix system commands for terminal control, i.e. stty  and	 tput,
       both  of	 which have to be found in the $PATH. If any of these two com‐
       mands is missing the loading of the package will fail.

       The package provides commands to switch the standard input of the  cur‐
       rent  process between raw and cooked input modes, and to query the size
       of terminals, i.e. the available number of columns and lines.

API
   INTROSPECTION
       ::term::ansi::ctrl::unix::import ?ns? ?arg...?
	      This command imports some or all	attribute  commands  into  the
	      namespace	 ns.  This is by default the namespace ctrl. Note that
	      this is relative namespace name, placing	the  imported  command
	      into  a  child of the current namespace. By default all commands
	      are imported, this can howver be restricted by listing the names
	      of the wanted commands after the namespace argument.

   OPERATIONS
       ::term::ansi::ctrl::unix::raw
	      This  command switches the standard input of the current process
	      to raw input mode. This means that from then on  all  characters
	      typed  by	 the  user are immediately reported to the application
	      instead of waiting in the OS buffer until the  Enter/Return  key
	      is received.

       ::term::ansi::ctrl::unix::raw
	      This  command switches the standard input of the current process
	      to cooked input mode. This means that from then on  all  charac‐
	      ters  typed by the user are kept in OS buffers for editing until
	      the Enter/Return key is received.

       ::term::ansi::ctrl::unix::columns
	      This command queries the	terminal  connected  to	 the  standard
	      input for the number of columns available for display.

       ::term::ansi::ctrl::unix::rows
	      This  command  queries  the  terminal  connected to the standard
	      input for the number of rows (aka lines) available for display.
