Plan9 cpu client
Drawterm8 is not a Plan 9 program. It is a program that users of non-Plan 9 systems can use to establish graphical cpu1 connections with Plan 9 CPU servers. Just as a real Plan 9 terminal does, drawterm serves its local name space as well as some devices the keyboard, mouse, and screen to a remote CPU server, which mounts this name space on /mnt/term and starts a shell. Typically, either explicitly or via the profile, one uses the shell to start rio1.
