Hi. Following is a project idea for Google Summer of Code 2009 for the
GNU Screen project. I can be a mentor for this, and Micah Cowan
(address@hidden) has agreed to be a backup mentor.

<h4 id='screen-script'>Embed scripting support for GNU Screen</h4>

<p>GNU Screen currently does not support any kind of scripting.
However, with the wide array of tasks that it is used for, some
scripting support will help users to use screen in a much more
effective and efficient manner.</p>

<p>Some rudimentary <a 
proof-of-concept</a> implementation for scripting support has been
done. We are looking for interested students to complete this task.
The student will need to design the interface between screen and the
scripting module(s), and implement at least one module for a
scripting language of the student's choice (e.g. guile, lua, python,
perl etc.).</p>

<p>Interested students are welcome to discuss this, or other
interesting ideas for GNU Screen in the 
<a href="mailto: address@hidden">mailing list</a>.</p>
