      Description

      Similar to how Guacamole's terminal emulator allows output to be temporarily redirected to a pipe stream, the terminal emulator should also accept the creation of an inbound pipe stream to serve as the source of user input.

      For this to work correctly:

      • The behavior of the inbound pipe stream would need to be predictable from the perspective of client-side JavaScript, presumably requiring a standardized name for the stream ("STDIN"?)
      • Handling of keyboard input while the pipe stream is redirected would need to be paused, to ensure that keyboard events cannot interfere with the interpretation of the stream by whatever is running within the SSH/telnet session.
