It is a terminal emulator for communicating with the built-in Android shell. Emulates a reasonably large subset of Digital Equipment Corporation VT-100 terminal codes, so that programs like "vi", "Emacs" and "NetHack" will display properly.

Using the app you can run scrips, commands, run commands with administrator privileges (su), copy or edit system files.

This code is based on the "Term" application which is included in the Android source code release. It's provided as a separate project for the convenience of developers who do not want to deal with installing and building the whole Android source tree.

Although this program does not include a built-in ssh client, it can be used with command-line-based ssh tools such as dropbear.
