3 SET-UP Features

General

SET-UP lets you select many VT102 features to configure the terminal for specific applications. This chapter describes SET-UP and each of the SET-UP features.

SET-UP

In SET-UP, you can select features at the keyboard. Current feature selections appear on the screen. Two SET-UP displays show the features selections - SET-UP A and SET-UP B (Figure 3-1). The first display (SET-UP A) shows the location of the tab stops selected. A visual ruler numbers each column. The second display (SET-UP B) shows the other SET-UP features.

  • Automatically exits SET-UP. Characters displayed before entering SET-UP are lost; the screen is blank.

Default Memory

This memory holds default SET-UP feature selections for all SET-UP features. Default SET-UP feature selections are typical feature selections you cannot change. When a default occurs, operating memory SET-UP feature selections change to default selections. There are two types of default selections, general and tab default. A default does not change SET-UP features in user memory. A default occurs when you select it or when the terminal cannot read user memory.

General Default

This changes all SET-UP features in operating memory to default memory selections. SET-UP A features are set to 80 columns per line, with a tab stop every eighth column. SET-UP B default features are shown in Figure 3-3. The terminal switches off-line and erases the answerback message from operating memory. Select a general default by using the following procedure.

Operator Preference Features

These features configure the terminal to operator preferences. They do not affect information transferred between the terminal, computer, and printer.

Communication Compatibility Features

These features configure the terminal for compatibility with a computer and optional serial printer. There are many combinations of SET-UP features used when communicating. An error in these selections may stop communication or transfer incorrect information between the terminal, computer, and printer.

NOTE: This chapter describes the SET-UP features used to provide compatibility. See Chapter 6 for more information about using these SET-UP features.

Installation Features

These features configure the terminal for operation in different installations. If the terminal location changes, you must verify these feature selections.

Feature Descriptions

The following descriptions group SET-UP features by the SET-UP display in which they appear. There are three types: general SET-UP features (in any SET-UP display), SET-UP A features, and SET-UP B features.

Each section begins with a general procedure for changing each SET-UP feature in that SET-UP display. Where needed, the SET-UP feature descriptions provide more detail.

General SET-UP Features

You can change the on/off line and screen brightness SET-UP features in any SET-UP display. Dedicated keys select these features. Each feature description includes the specific procedure used to select the feature.

On/Off Line

This feature places the terminal either on-line or off-line (Figure 3-4). While on-line, ON LINE is on and the terminal can communicate with the computer. The terminal transmits keyboard entries to the computer and displays characters received from the computer on the screen.

When switched off-line, the terminal disconnects from the communication line and erases both the input and keyboard character buffers. While off-line, OFF LINE is on and the terminal cannot communicate with the computer. The terminal does not transmit keyboard entries, but displays them on the screen. Select on-line or off-line by using the following procedure.

NOTE: When the disconnect character enable SET-UP feature is on, perform a long break disconnect before switching the terminal off-line. See Chapter 6 for more information about performing a long break disconnect.

The following paragraphs describe the features shown by the SET-UP switches on the screen. Switches are referenced in order by group and number. For example, switch 3-2 is the second switch from the left in the third group. Following these features, the text describes the modem and printer interface features. The answerback feature is the last feature described.

Scroll (Switch 1-1: 0 = Jump, 1 = Smooth)

Scrolling is the upward or downward movement of existing lines on the screen. Scrolling makes room for new lines at the bottom or top of the screen. There are two methods of scrolling, jump scroll or smooth scroll.

Jump scroll displays new lines on the screen as fast as received. You should select jump scroll when using half-duplex communication or full-duplex communication without XON/XOFF support.

Smooth scroll limits the speed at which new lines can appear. Therefore, the movement of lines occurs at a smooth, steady rate. This makes the lines displayed on the screen easier to read.

Auto Repeat (Switch 1-2: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature repeats a key automatically, when you hold it down for more than one-half second. Keys auto repeat at the rate of about 30 times per second. Auto repeat affects all keyboard keys except SET-UP, ESC, RETURN, ENTER, NO SCROLL, and CTRL with another key. When this feature is off, keys do not auto repeat.

Screen Background (Switch 1-3: 0 = Dark, 1 = Light)

This feature determines the screen background (Figure 3-9). The dark setting selects light characters on a dark background. The light setting (reverse screen) selects dark characters on a light background.

Figure 3-9 Screen Background

Cursor (Switch 1-4: 0 = Underline, 1 = Block)

This feature provides a choice between two cursor displays. The cursor indicates the active screen position (where the next character will appear). The cursor is either a blinking underline (_) or blinking block ([]).

Margin Bell (Switch 2-1: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature generates a bell tone when the cursor moves past the eighth character position from the end of the line. The margin bell can turn on or off. Margin bell volume is not adjustable.

NOTE: This feature works when typing text, as in a typewriter. It may give unexpected results when performing other functions.

Keyclick (Switch 2-2: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

Keyclick is the sound generated each time you press a key, except for SHIFT and CTRL. Keyclick can turn on or off; however, operators usually prefer this feature on. Keyclick volume is not adjustable.

Keyclicks do not sound during a keyboard locked condition (indicated by KBD LOCKED). See Chapter 1 for more information about KBD LOCKED.

ANSI/VT52 (Switch 2-3: 0 = VT52, 1 = ANSI)

The terminal follows two different standards for processing control functions, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and VT52 compatible. With ANSI, the terminal generates and responds to control functions per ANSI standards X3.41-1974 and X3.64-1979. With VT52 compatible, the terminal can operate with previous DIGITAL software using the VT52 video terminal. See Chapter 5 for more information about received characters and control functions.

Auto XON/XOFF (FDX) (Switch 2-4: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

The terminal places received characters (other than NUL) in an input character buffer. The input buffer holds received characters until the terminal processes them. After processing, the terminal sends the characters to the computer, printer, or screen.

If the terminal receives characters faster than it can process them, the input character buffer begins to fill. Also, entering SET-UP prevents the terminal from taking characters from the input buffer; this fills the input buffer and may cause the loss of characters. When the buffer is full, the terminal loses received characters and displays the substitute character ([]).

In full-duplex communication, the auto XON/XOFF feature prevents the loss of received characters. When the feature is on, the terminal transmits XON and XOFF to indicate that the input character buffer is almost full or empty. When this buffer is almost full, the terminal transmits XOFF (DC3). The computer should stop transmitting characters.

As the terminal processes (removes) characters from the input character buffer, the number of characters in the buffer decreases. When the input buffer is almost empty, the terminal transmits XON (DC1) to allow the computer to continue transmitting characters.

When this feature is off, the terminal ignores XON and XOFF when received. NO SCROLL (which uses XON and XOFF) does not function.

NOTE: The printer interface uses XON and XOFF regardless of the auto XON/XOFF selection.

When this feature is on, XON and XOFF control the keyboard character buffer. After receiving XOFF, the terminal stops transmitting characters to the computer. After receiving XON the terminal can transmit characters to the computer.

US/UK Character Set (Switch 3-1: 0 = #, 1 = £)

This feature selects either the United States or United Kingdom character set. The difference between the two character sets is one character, the US # (number) or UK £ (pound) symbol.

Auto Wrap (Switch 3-2: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature selects where the next received character will appear when the cursor is at the right margin. When the feature is off, the terminal writes the character and all following characters into the last column of the current line. When the feature is on, the terminal automatically displays the character on the next line.

Linefeed/New Line (Switch 3-3: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature selects the character(s) transmitted by RETURN and determines the action taken by the terminal when receiving a linefeed.

When the feature is off, pressing RETURN generates a carriage return (CR). A linefeed (LF) moves the cursor to the next line, maintaining the current column position.

When the feature is on, pressing RETURN generates a carriage return (CR) and linefeed (LF). A linefeed (LF) moves the cursor to the left margin of the next line.

NOTE: The terminal processes form feed (FF) and vertical tab (VT) as linefeed (LF).

Local Echo (Switch 3-4: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

When this feature is on, every character transmitted to the computer automatically appears on the screen (Figure 3-10). The computer does not have to transmit (echo) the character back to the terminal for display. When the feature is off, the terminal transmits characters only to the computer. The computer must transmit them back to the terminal for display.

Figure 3-10 Local Echo

Print Termination Character (Switch 4-1: 0 = None, 1 = Form Feed)

When this feature is set to form feed, the terminal transmits a form feed (FF) to the printer after a print screen operation. When the feature is set to none, the terminal does not transmit the print termination character. However, carriage return (CR) and linefeed (LF) are always transmitted when printing ends.

Print Extent (Switch 4-2: 0 = S Reg, 1 = F Screen)

This feature selects the characters printed during a print screen operation. When the feature is set for full screen (F Screen), all characters on the screen print. When the feature is set for scrolling region (S Reg), only the characters located in the scrolling region print. The scrolling region is the screen area between the top and bottom margins. The computer selects the margins. If margins are not selected, all characters on the screen print.

One or Two Stop Bits (Switch 4-3: 0 = one, 1 = two)

This feature selects the number of stop bits (one or two) used by the modem interface. The number of stop bits used by the computer and terminal must be the same. See Modem Serial Characters in Chapter 6 for more information about asynchronous character format and the use of stop bits.

NOTE: This feature does not select the number of stop bits used by the printer interface. The printer transmit/receive speed SET-UP feature does.

Receive Parity (Switch 4-4: 0 = Ignore, 1 = Check)

This feature either checks or ignores the parity bit of received characters. If the feature is set to check, the terminal checks the parity bit selected by the parity feature.

NOTE: The terminal can check received characters for odd or even parity, but not for mark and space parity.

If a receive parity error occurs, the terminal displays the substitution character ([]) in place of the character with the error. When the feature is set to ignore, the terminal ignores any parity bit received.

Break Enable (Switch 5-1: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

When this feature is on, pressing BREAK transmits a break. When this feature is off, BREAK does not operate when pressed alone. All other key sequences using BREAK are not affected. See Break in Chapter 6 for more information.

Disconnect Character Enable (Switch 5-2: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

When this feature is on, the terminal disconnects from the communication line after receiving a disconnect character. The terminal also automatically transmits a disconnect character after a long break disconnect. When the feature is off, received control characters do not cause communication line disconnects.

The turnaround/disconnect feature selects the disconnect character. See Turnaround/Disconnect Character for more information about turnaround characters.

Disconnect Delay (FDX) (Switch 5-3: 0 = UK, 1 = Other)

This feature is only used when the modem control feature is set to full-duplex with modem control (FDX B and FDX C). In these modes, the terminal disconnects from the communication line after receive line signal detection (RLSD) turns off. This feature selects the time period between loss of signal and disconnection.

In the United Kingdom, the telephone system transmits a dial tone 0.06 seconds after RLSD is lost. For most other installations, the system transmits a dial tone after 2 seconds.

NOTE: In the United States, always set this feature for other (1).

Auto Answerback Enable (Switch 5-4: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature causes the terminal to automatically transmit the answerback message after a communication line connection. In half-duplex communication with the initial direction feature set to receive, the terminal cannot transmit the answerback message until the line turns around. This feature does not affect the transmission of the answerback message when using CTRL and BREAK. See Answerback in this chapter for more information.

Initial Direction (HDX) (Switch 6-1: 0 = RCV, 1 = XMIT)

This feature is only used when the modem control feature is set to half-duplex (HDX A or HDX B). The feature determines if the terminal begins half-duplex communication by receiving (RCV) or transmitting (XMIT).

Auto Turnaround (HDX) (Switch 6-2: 0 = Manual, 1 = Auto)

This feature is only used when the modem control feature is set to half-duplex coded control (HDX B). The feature causes the terminal to automatically transmit the turnaround character (selected by the turnaround/disconnect character feature) after:

NOTE: If the turnaround character is carriage return (CR), RETURN does not generate two carriage returns.

When this feature is set for manual, you must use a CTRL key combination to generate the turnaround character. See Chapter 4 when using CTRL to generate control characters.

Reserved (Switch 6-3: Always = 0)

This feature is reserved for future use. Do not change.

Reserved (Switch 6-4: Always = 0)

This feature is reserved for future use. Do not change.

Power (Switch 7-1: 0 = 60 Hz, 1 = 50 Hz)

This feature is set to match the power line frequency. You should set the feature to reduce screen flicker.

WPS Terminal Keyboard (Switch 7-2: 0 = Off, 1 = On)

This feature changes the position of the LINE FEED and \ (backslash) keys when the VT102 operates as a word processing terminal. Otherwise, this feature is off (0).

Clock (Switch 7-3: Always = 1)

This feature selects the modem clock. Do not change this selection, or the terminal cannot communicate with the computer.

Reserved (Switch 7-4: Always = 0)

This feature is reserved for future use. Do not change.

Modem Data/Parity Bits

This feature selects two separate but related communication features, data bits per character and parity. You can set data bits per character to seven or eight data bits. When you select eight bits, the terminal sets the eighth data bit to a space (or 0) for transmitted characters and ignores the eighth bit of received characters.

Parity selects the type of parity bit the terminal generates when transmitting or receiving characters. To check the parity of received characters, set the receive parity feature to check. When you use received parity, set the parity feature to odd or even. The terminal cannot check mark and space parity.

If you select no parity, the terminal omits the parity bit in transmitted characters and ignores it in received characters. Table 3-3 lists the possible data bits per character/parity combinations. Set the modem data/parity bits feature by using the following procedure.

Printer Transmit/Receive Speed

This feature selects the terminal speed (baud rate) for transmitting and receiving characters from the printer. The receive and transmit speeds of the printer interface are always the same (different receive and transmit speeds are not provided). Set feature to match the printer transmit and receive speeds. The printer interface uses one of the following receive/transmit speeds: 50, 75, 110, 134.5, 150, 200, 300, 600, 1200, 1800, 2000, 2400, 3600, 4800, 9600, and 19,200 baud. The printer interface uses one stop bit per character for speeds greater than 110, and two stop bits per character for 110 or less. Select the printer interface receive/transmit speeds by using the following procedure.

Answerback

This feature lets you store a 20-character identifying message that the terminal transmits to the computer under the following conditions.

Enter the answerback message by using the following procedure.

Procedure Indication/Comments
Press SET-UP to enter SET-UP. Terminal displays SET-UP A.
Press SETUP A/B to enter SET-UP B. Terminal displays SET-UP B.
Hold down SHIFT and press A. Terminal displays A =
(Figure 3-11).
Type the message delimiter character. This can be any character not used in the answerback message. The terminal does not transmit the message delimiter character as part of the answerback message.
Type the answerback message.

The answerback message can include up to 20 characters. If you use control characters, they appear as (<>) character.

If you make a mistake while typing the message, type the delimiter character already used and return to the third step of this procedure. This is the only way to correct errors in the answerback message.

If the message is less than 20 characters, type the delimiter character.

If you type 20 characters, the message automatically enters operating memory. Otherwise, type the delimiter character to enter the message into operating memory.

You can enter the answerback message into user memory by performing a store.
