       vttest - test VT100-type terminal

       vttest [options] [24x80.132]

       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,

       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).

       geometry, VT220-VT420, ISO color and xterm-specific tests.
