It is called "lcdemu":

It has been writen by Piotr Esden-Tempski:
weasel AT

It emulate a Matrix Orbital throught a named pipe.
Could have been TCP connection with my low-level communication layer ;-)

It require Zut!:


PS: It is an ugly hack, mostly because:
it use Zut!
make a lot of process piping to each other
generate a lot of traffic between lcdemu and Zut!

However it give a very nice output on an X11 screen.

PPS: I haven't tested the last version so things may have changed since.
