Which Terminal Type are you Using?

This guide provides sample programs and other types of information that are specific for each of the terminal types supported for your product.

When you view samples and other tabbed content, make sure the tab for the terminal type you are using is selected. For example, the Open Systems tab is selected below.

Note: Most of the samples in this guide do not include tabs for UTS, T27, or ALC terminals. However, you can modify the IBM samples to work for these terminals by replacing code for opening or creating sessions with the code in Dynamically Open a Session or Dynamically Create a Session.

OpenSystems refers to supported OpenSystems terminal emulations (UNIX, OpenVMS, and ReGIS Graphics). Names of all other terminal types are self-explanatory.

After you select the tab for your terminal type, it remains selected on all subsequent topics until you select another type.

To determine which type of terminal you are using

  1. Open a session in InfoConnect.
  2. View the file extension on the session tab to determine which terminal you are using:
    Terminal Type File Extension
    IBM .rd3x or .rd5x
    Open Systems .rdox
    ALC .ialc
    UTS .iuts
    T27 .it27
