NAME
       vttest - test VT100-type terminal

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.   You
       can  run all menu-items (for a given level) by entering an asterisk, i.e,
       `*'.

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.

       -8   use 8-bit controls (this can be changed with a menu option).

AUTHOR
       Per Lindberg (mcvax,seismo)!enea!suadb!lindberg sometime 1985.

       Modified  by  Thomas Dickey from June 1996, to support nonstandard screen
       geometry, VT220-VT420, ISO color and xterm-specific tests.
