Ok, the color_xterm program (The version of Xterm which was modified to
respond to ANSI color and text changes) works great... But since I use
Seyon to talk to BBS's which commonly use the graphic characters to do some
fancy graphics like boxes and diagrams on the screen, what I need is either:
1) An X font which is similar to the extended character set which IBM and
Apple Macintoshes expect to contain corners, boxes, cross lines, etc.
2) I noticed by doing an "xfd -fn 10x20" that the standard "Fixed" character
sets have international characters where the ANSI BBS's expect these
graphic drawing characters. So my interim solution is to remap specific
international characters to the graphic characters using XTerm X
resources, so that when the Xterm window (spawned by Seyon) receives
these (ranging from ascii decimal 170 to 200 or so) it replaces them
with numbers down in the 10 to 20 range.
So does anybody have pre-set character code mapping for any of the
standard X fonts that makes the international character sets look more
like the ANSI IBM extended character set?
3) I know you can set eightBitOutput false so that 128 is subtracted from
any incoming character code before being printed, but I don't think
that is sthe solution because at least for this particular "ANSI" bbs
I was using to reverse engineer the mappings, they seemed to range fromm
186 to 196 difference between the character code values, but I could
have chosen wrong...
4) Is there a document on the supported resources for color_xterm? I have
no manual page on it.
