Does anyone know a good (technical) book on the VT terminal series?

The VT500 documentation is available online at

Also, you can probably find some information if you start at Digital's
home page ( ).

1. SMG for VT (really VMS documentation and terminal info)

Joel Wells/Desktop Solutions <> wrote in "comp.terminals":

This is really not a terminal issue as such.

The SMG product (rumored to stand for "Screen Management Guidelines"
although "Screen Management Facility" is now the official name) is a
layered product that is used with the OpenVMS operating system from
the part of Compaq that once was called Digital Equipment.

SMG provides facilities for forms-based I/O on character-mode
asynchronous video terminals.  Just remember to "paste" your form
after you have built it!

Some VMS documentation is still available from this Web URL:

and specifically for SMG:

Other archived information on using character-cell video terminals,
such as VT100s, with several operating systems is available from here:

Follow the link:
