It probably will not help you but MSEgui has "tterminal" for the purpose. It 
is based on the "tcustomtextedit" widget. "tcustomtextedit" and its 
descendents (ttextedit, tundotextedit, tsyntaxedit, tterminal...) should be 
placed into a "twidgetgrid" and builds a text editor column in the grid. The 
underlying cell datatype is "richstringty", a UnicodeString with per 
character font style and color info. tterminal can start processes and read 
and write pipes.
