Host Prompt Character

An HP 3000 sends a DC1 character to indicate that it is ready to accept a line or block of characters. This character is sent immediately after the MPE colon prompt is sent. This list allows you to change which character is expected.

Most hosts either use the DC1 (^Q) character or no prompt (that shows up simply as a space). Select the appropriate host prompt from this list (turn on DISPLAY FUNCTIONS to see the control codes sent by the host before changing this value).

The values are ASCII decimal 0-127. The default is D1 (ASCII decimal 17).
