/vttest, Utility to test vt100/vt220/xterm
20140305, Package name:
vttest-20140305, Maintainer: drochner
This is a program to test the compatibility (or to demonstrate the
non-compatibility) of so-called "VT100-compatible" terminals. In conformance
of the good old hacker traditions, the only documentation of this program is
the source code itself. To understand it, you also need a copy of the
original VT100 manual from DEC.

Update to 20140305. Changes:
+ when NRCS is active, suppress ISO Latin-1 from menu to avoid
confusion with British NRCS.
+ do not highlight ISO Latin-1 for NRCS, since it is a 96-character
set, not applicable to NRCS.
+ expand menu 11.6.6 to demonstrate bce with top-level menus 1 and 2
in addition to the existing menu 8.
+ correct description for DA response 24; it denotes VT320.
+ add highlighting information for VT320 Portuguese NRC mapping.
+ add highlighting information for VT220 DEC Supplemental NRC mapping.
+ clear screen just before resetting SCS in menu #3 character sets,
in case a VT100 emulator does not simply ignore VT220 G2/G3
selections when it does not implement them.
+ add check for maximum operating level before deciding whether
to send a DECSCL to set it to VT100-level.
+ save/restore color enable-flag for menu 11.6 in a couple of places
so that the ISO-6429 tests do not reset it unexpectedly.
+ amend the REP test to not reset colors if it happens to be run via
the menu entry for BCE-related tests.

Update to 20130818. Changes:
+ change cursor-position before IL/DL in
"Test of VT102-style features with BCE (Insert/Delete Char/Line)"
to demonstrate whether the terminal sets the cursor to the first
column as a side-effect, as noted in VT220 reference manual.
+ modify character-sets screens to optionally highlight the characters
which do not correspond to ISO-8859-1. This makes the National
Replacement Characters easier to see.
+ modify DSR cursor-position report to check if the terminal
accounts for origin-mode.
