Blanks and locks a curses-compatible character terminal
'Termlock' blanks and locks a curses-compatible character terminal. To unlock it, the user must enter a password. The password, or rather the password hash, is stored in ~/.termlock. Basically, 'termlock' acts as a password-protected screensaver for character terminals.
