In my opinion , one of the most important tools in such a work is the
ability to display
stdin , stdout and stderr on different monitors alongside with output
monitor(s) for graphic displays such as Gnome or KDE or any other X based
desktops also .

This requires additions to FreeBSD sources to definition of such
application which requires to use at the same time multiple graphic cards (
on board , PCI , USB , etc. , simultaneously ) .

My knowledge is not sufficient to achieve this .

This will allow watching execution steps on line instead of diverting them
to file and then read the contents of file .

Thank you very much .
