SYNOPSIS

vttest [options] [24x80.132]

DESCRIPTION

Vttest is a program designed to test the functionality of a VT100 terminal (or emulator thereof). It tests both display (escape sequence handling) and keyboard.

The program is menu-driven and contains full on-line operating instructions.
- To run a given menu-item, you must enter its number.
- Menu items start at zero; this is the "Exit" item in almost all cases.
- You can run all menu-items (for a given level) by entering an asterisk, i.e, ‘*’.
- You can force a repaint of the menu items by entering "?".
- A few menus can be more than one page. Use "n" and "p" to switch to the next or previous page.

OPTIONS

You can specify the screen geometry in the form [24x80.132], i.e., 24 lines, 80 minimum columns, 132 maximum columns. If your terminal does not switch between 80 and 132 columns you may specify 24x80.80, for example, to avoid a misleading display.

Other options are:
-f file
  specify a file containing a DRCS (soft character definition) string.
-l log test results to vttest.log.
-p use padding, e.g., for a VT100 connected to a high-speed line.
-s add time-delay in selected panning/scrolling options to show details.
-8 use 8-bit controls (this can be changed with a menu option).

AUTHOR
