I did export TERM env variable before starting smit.

I tried setting TERM to ibm3151 and then exported TERM, and I see that
the whole screen is undreadble.


I assume that you set the emulation in the terminal to ibm3151 also.

Any other ideas ?

Michael, Thank you for your reply. I tried above combinations you
wrote but it does not work that way for me, but it could be becuase

I

have set TERM to "vt100" and then I am running smit. Do you have

your

TERM set to something else ?

When I have TERM set to vt100, this is what happens:

CTL ^ => messes up the screen and no way to recover.
CTL $ => works as F10 as it gets me back to prompt.

May be if I set the TERM what you have set , above could work for

me.

Please advise.

thanks.


Evidently the Wyse 55 does not work the same as a PC. I am using the


vt100 emulation under Procomm Plus. In my programs the mappings I
listed work but with smit they are different. There CTL \ is the F3

key

and CTL $ does not work. The only other thing I can think is to try

the

IBM 3151 emulation and see if it works better. Also is the TERM=

entry

set to vt100?

We have WY-55 terminal serially attached to IBM server running AIX.
The keyboard does not have Esc key and none of the Function keys are
mapped. So, F3 or F10 to exit from 'smit' does not work. None of the
function keys work. (Many times Esc+3+enter works as F3)

I downloaded the WY-55 keyboard mapping and it says to use "^[" for Esc
and "CTRL A B CR" for Function key F3 but it does not seem to be
working.

Does anyone out there has this terminal in use who can provide me a key
sequences for F3/F2/F4/F6/F10 ? Any help will be appreciated.


Try CTL \ for F1, CTL ] for F2, CTL ^ for F3, and CTL - for F4. Further
experimenting should provide the rest of the mappings. I had to learn
the first 4 as some terminal emulators occasionally lose the mappings
and I need the keys to end what I am doing.
