Description

When CRM mode is set, all characters (graphic or control) are displayed in the CRM font. All control functions are displayed as graphic characters. No control functions are executed, except LF, FF, and VT, which are represented in the CRM font before a CRLF (new line) is executed. XOFF (DC3) and XON (DC1) are used for flow control (if enabled). DC1 and DC3 are displayed after execution.

This function affects data received in the data stream following the change to CRM mode. Characters already displayed are not affected. Entering Control Representation mode temporarily causes G0 and GL to be loaded with ASCII. G2 and GR are loaded with user-selected Supplemental Graphic characters if in 8-bit Multinational Character mode.
