MWTerm is a terminal emulator that runs on an Apple Macintosh computer. It provides a multiple window interface in which each window maps to a independent process on the host computer. It is designed to run in conjunction with a cooperating program on the host computer, under the Unix operating system. This paper describes the ideas behind the user interface presented by MWTerm. The implementation of both the Macintosh and the Unix ends is described. A discussion of the lessons learned and future enhancements is provided.
