|Title: ||CRTCOLS, switching display width|
|Author: ||Michael Marxmeier (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
Which terminal type is suitable for CRTCOLS=132?
Setting CRT width is only supported for selected
terminals (this depends on terminal capabilities and is
currently hard-coded into eloqcore).
The following terminal types are supported (as of A.06.10):
- HP Terminals protocol:
- 70092, 70094, 70096, 70098
- Other terminals:
- 70060, 70070, vt320
As of A.06.20, switching display width is supported for the
xterm and dtterm may require an additonal commandline arg to enable
the DECCOLM capability.
In addition to the hard coded list of terminals types the
environment variable EQ_ALT_SCREEN_WIDTH can be defined
to indicate the terminal does support 132 column switching and
follows the vt320 conventions.
