T.1 ,T1.0%%%!9Press "0" to return to Menu, any other key to continue...,T1.0%%,81.0%%%%%N%%,1.0%%%!FMost of the time you are using TELIX, you will be in the terminal ,T1.0%%%!Fmode. Normal ASCII characters will be went to the port the modem is ,T1.0%%%!Fconnected to and incoming characters will be written to the screen. ,T1.0%%%!-When you're in the terminal mode, just press ,T1.0% !ALT-Z ,S1.0%!to get the help ,S1.0%%%!Fscreen. ,T1.0%% %!-The second choice on the Configuration Menu (,T1.0% !ALT-O,S1.0%!) allows you to ,S1.0%%
%!Fchange many of the terminal's parameters. You can change things like:,T1.0%% %!F The communication parameters, such as the Baud rate to match ,T1.0%%
%!F the modem's speed, the length of the data word length to 7 ,T1.0%%%!F or 8 bits, whether the parity is Even, Odd, or None, and the ,T1.0%%%!F number of Stop Bits used. Any changes in comm parameters ,T1.0%%%!F you make here begin taking effect the next time TELIX is ,T1.0%%%!F run. To make changes in communications parameters that are ,T1.0%%%!/ effective during the present session, use ,T1.0% !ALT-P,S1.0%!. ,S1.0%%%!F The communication port where TELIX expects to find your modem. ,T1.0%%,81.0,=1%0*à+n&(å0, 1.0%%%²%%O%%,1.0%p%%! TERMINAL INFORMATION ,T1.0%p%%%! T.2 ,T1.0%%%!9Press "0" to return to Menu, any other key to continue...,T1.0%%,81.0%%%%%N%%,1.0%%%!F TELIX can act like a number of different terminals. These ,T1.0%%%!F include TTY, ANSI-BBS, VT102, VT52, and AVATER. You can ,T1.0%%%!F select the one you need. The two most common ones are TTY ,T1.0%%%!F and ANSI_BBS. TTY will work with almost anything, but there ,T1.0%%%!F are no graphic capabilities. ANSI-BBS will support both ,T1.0%%%!F color and graphics. ,T1.0%% %!F A video display terminal is basically a dumb computer which ,T1.0%%
%!F is linked up to another computer (over a cable or modem and ,T1.0%% %!F displays what is sent to it. ,T1.0%%
%!F Each terminal type has its own codes for controlling how ,T1.0%%%!F information is displayed on the screen. There are control ,T1.0%%%!F sequences to clear the screen, move the cursor, scroll the ,T1.0%%%!F display, and so on. These terminals also have special keys ,T1.0%%%!F to send special sequences back and forth. ,T1.0%%,81.0,=1%0*C +n&(H 0, 1.0%%%²%%O%%,1.0%p%%! TERMINAL INFORMATION ,T1.0%p%%%! T.3 ,T1.0%%%!9Press "0" to return to Menu, any other key to continue...,T1.0%%,81.0%%%%%N%%,1.0%%%!F Telix can imitate several terminal types. You can choose ,T1.0%%%!F the one you want while in the Configuration Menu, or by ,T1.0%%%!F pressing Alt-T. The terminal types you can set are: ,T1.0% %%!
TTY,T1.0%!9: A TTY (Teletype) terminal is pretty stupid. It ,S1.0%%%!F basically displays all the values it receives, except ,T1.0%%%!F for about 5 or 6 Control codes (such as Carriage Re- ,T1.0%% %!F turn), which move the cursor and ring the bell. Telix ,T1.0%%
%!F doesn't have any special key definitions for this ,T1.0%% %!F terminal type. ,T1.0% %
%! ANSI-BBS,T1.0%!4: Many BBS programs, when told to do so, can ,S1.0%%%!F send sequences supported by this terminal to make ,T1.0%%%!F screen display more interesting and colorful. TELIX'S ,T1.0%%%!F ANSI.KEY file contains definitions for the arrow keys, ,T1.0%%%!F and is automatically read when this terminal is select- ,T1.0%%%!F ed. ,T1.0%%,81.0,=1%0*+n&(0, 1.0%%%²%%O%%,1.0%p%%!

VT102,T1.0%!7: The DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) VT102 ,S1.0%%%!F terminal is one of the most popular (and most imitated ,T1.0%%%!F terminals in existence. The VT102 terminal has a large ,T1.0%%%!F number of functions. Telix supports all of these except ,T1.0%%%!F for 132 column mode and double height mode. ,T1.0%%%!F The VT102 keyboard layout used by Telix is stored in ,T1.0%% %!F the file named VT102.KEY. It is automatically read by ,T1.0%%
%!F Telix when VT102 terminal emulation is selected. ,T1.0% % %! VT52,T1.0%!8: The DEC VT52 is another relatively common termi- ,S1.0%%
%!F nal type. TELIX's key definitions for the ,T1.0%%%!F VT52 are stored in the VT52.KEY file. ,T1.0%%%! The location of the ,T1.0% ! Status Line,S1.0%!". It contains some helpful infor-,S1.0%%%!F mation. You can choose whether it's displayed at the top or ,T1.0%%%!F bottom of the screen. ,T1.0%%,81.0,=1%0*™+n&(ž0, 1.0%%%²%%O%%,1.0%p%%!

Whether characters are sent to the screen by you ,S1.0%%%!F modem or the one you're connected with can be chosen. When you ,T1.0%%%!F have Local Echo on, it's called half Duplex. When it's off, it's,T1.0%%%!F called Full Duplex. It's usually turned off for BBSing. If you ,T1.0%%%!D are getting double characters like "aa,,bb,,cc,,dd......" ,T1.0%%%!F printed on the screen when connected to a BBS, ttuurrnn iitt ,T1.0%%%!F ooffff. ,T1.0% %
%! Add Line Feeds,T1.0%!3. If you're connected to a BBS and lines are ,S1.0%% %!F overwriting each other, turn it on. TELIX will add a Line Feed ,T1.0%% %!F every time a carriage return comes in. Normally, you'd keep it ,T1.0%%
%!F off. ,T1.0% %%! Strip High Bit,T1.0%!3. TELIX can strip the most significant bit from ,S1.0%%%!F received data bytes. Sometimes this is useful. Normally, it's ,T1.0%%%!F off. ,T1.0% %%!# Received backspace destructive,T1.0%!#. How incoming backspace charac- ,S1.0%%%!F ters are treated is affected by this setting.

This allows TELIX to start an,S1.0%%%!F automatic download when using the Zmodem transfer protocol. Some,T1.0%%%!F may not have a system with a hard disk and have to insert a ,T1.0%%%!F floppy diskette into the drive before downloading files. If you ,T1.0%%%!F need time to do this, make sure this option is turned off. ,T1.0% %%! Answerback string,T1.0%!0. Some systems need the terminal program to send,S1.0%% %!F an identification string when an ENQ (Ctrl-E) character is re- ,T1.0%%
%!D ceived. You can place the "answerback" string here. Nothing is,T1.0%% %!F sent if this string is empty or if the Compuserve Quick B trans- ,T1.0%% %!F fers option is turned on. ,T1.0%%,81.0,=1*n&0, 1.0, 1.&B
