I'm in need of a VT320 emulator with key-bindings for Oracle
SQL*Forms; it needs to either run under Linux/Unix or else be
an old DOS-based application that I can try running under
"dosemu" (a Windows-based app through Wine would not be
I'm either looking for an Open Source solution (read: free), or
else something from Digital that my place of employment can get
through the Campus-Wide Software License.
Someone suggested "kermit", but unfortunately I don't know the
key-bindings for the various forms application keys (ie. Menu,
Commit, Find, etc.). I've tried other supposed VT320 emulators
native to *nix as well -- but found them compliant in the very
loosest sense of the world!
Years ago I used something which I believe was called "setterm"
or "sethost" (the name escapes)... a DOS-based application from
Digital which I believe would fit the bill quite nicely through
dosemu -- but I can't find that software, and my organization
has *long* since discarded all that old DOS-based software media.
I've searched for a suitable solution several times in the past
but I'm still unable to use Forms-based applications from within
a *nix telnet session. ;-(
*Surely* somebody out there is using a *nix-based system to
communicate with a Vax-based Oracle application server who would
be able to hand me a clue?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
