      Hi Marc,

      Thank you for your response. I searched and searched. I found only two 
references in the two pages given by Google. All but one is the content 
of …/share/man/man7/urxvt.7, and the single other one was "Run a program 
under a pty session". What I understoud is that there are a lot of 
missunderstanding possible.

      Let me rephrase the question: I would like to know how to write in C a 
piece of code that:
would open a graphical (separate) window running urxvt and then
would open some bidirectional pipe to be able to
 - write to the standard input of that just opened urxvt running graphical 
window and
 - read from the standard output of that urxvt window.

      I first thought NCurses "newterm ()" would do the trick, but I have not 
succeeded in this direction.

      I thank you for your help.
