Terminal Emulation and the emulate Command

Autolog provides a number of different terminal emulations. Normally, Autolog doesn't emulate any particular brand of terminal: In other words, it acts like a "dumb" terminal.

If the remote system is not equipped with appropriate terminal software for your brand of terminal, screen displays may be messed up and difficult to read. You may want to emulate a kind of terminal that the remote system does support.

Use the emulate command to select a terminal emulation:
 

emulate terminal

where terminal is one of the following terminal emulations.

vt100

Use when the remote system supports ANSI terminals, DEC VT100T, or VT102T terminals. The emset command is used to change settings that affect how the terminal emulation behaves.
vt52
Use when the remote system supports DEC VT52T terminals. The emset command is used to change emulation settings.
bbs
For PC-based bulletin board systems that provide VT100-like terminal support but also display PC graphics. The emset command is used to change emulation settings.
 

sco 

For SCO Unix systems that provide VT100-like terminal support but also display PC graphics. There are subtle differences between vt100 vs. sco emulations that displaying the SCO programs scosh or scoadmin will reveal. The emset command is used to change emulation settings.
tty
Use when the remote system supports teletype (TTY) terminals. There are no changeable settings, so the emset command is not needed.
autgen
Use when talking to a remote Alpha MicroT system that offers the "generic" autgen terminal driver. The autgen.tdv terminal driver is included in the Autolog for AMOS release and can be distributed to remote Alpha Micro computers you may call that don't support your type of terminal. There are no changeable settings, so the emset command is not needed.
flipthru
A special emulation used in conjunction with AlphaBASE Systems FLiP for Unix shell.

wyse60

A limited emulation of a Wyse60 terminal using mode attributes. This emulation does not support protected fields. The emset command is used to change emulation settings.
