Abstract: This module was designed to down load pre-set commands to
the VT-200 terminal.
The first position in the file (VT200SETU.PRM) must be
either a semi-colon or the first digit of the function key
number as defined in the "VT-200 Programmers Pocket Guide",
page 39, and page 83 of the "VT-200 Programmer Reference
Manual". If the first character is not a semi-colon, the
first three characters must have the form "nn/" where nn=the
function key value, i.e. Function key 6 has a value of 17.
After the "/", the command line that is to be displayed when
that key is pressed, this program translates the string
into the hex pairs required by the VT-200. A tilde will be
translated into a carriage return, all other symbols will be
translated directly into their hex pair equivalent
(including semi-colons that are not in position 1).
To use the defined keys, press the shift key and the
function key simultaneously and the value of that key will
be displayed. If a carriage return (indicated by a "tilde"
in the file VT200SETU.PRM) was placed in the string, it will
