110785     VTLIBR: VT100 Library  Version: September 1984
Submitted by: Franz Schryber, University of Fribourg, Misericorde,
Operating System: RT-11 V4 and V5  Source Language: FORTRAN IV
Hardware Required: To use all features, VT100 with advanced video
option required.  Keywords: Terminal Management, Utilities - RT-11,
VT100 Routines
Abstract: VTLIBR, a VT100 library supporting nearly all VT100 ESCape
sequences, has been written in standard FORTRAN IV without
any inclusion of MACRO-11 (Assembler) or system routines, so
there is no computer dependency if a reasonable FORTRAN IV
STANDARD COMPILER is available.  In time VTLIBR is only
available as RT-11 object code library which must be used at
link time together with the user supplied FORTRAN application
program.  A standardized extensive documentation together
with sample routines written in FORTRAN and a small VTLIBR
tutorial are included to give ideas on how to use the
library.  Standard FORTRAN IV cannot capture messages (ESCape
sequences) which have been invoked by the program and which
are sent by the terminal back to the program.  Therefore, the
following VT100 ESCape sequences are not implemented:  cursor
position report, device attributes, cursor key mode, identify
terminal, keypad application mode, report terminal
parameters, request terminal parameters and device status
report.  Also the user may find e.g. a routine for keypad
application mode, nothing is done to capture and interpret
those ESCape sequences.  A READ.ME file gives general
information on the whole package and the VTLIBR tutorial is
included as hardcopy.
Notes: Source code comments in German.
Restrictions: ESCape sequences, which invoke back messages from the
terminal are not supported.
