Using the Delphi Editor

Using the Delphi Editor

Delphi is a VAX based system, therefore when you do an add/edit
or reply/edit in the Forum or a send/edit or reply/edit in mail,
you are invoking the VAX/VMS Editor known as EDT. However it
seems as if it only supports “line mode” of the editor. The
real power of EDT is it’s “screen mode” of operation. I am
using V-Term which supports VT100 emulation and when I call the
VAX8300 at my office, EDT works just fine in “screen mode”.
When I try to go to screen mode on Delphi, the screen gets
screwed up. Is there some setting somewhere which will enable me
to use “screen mode” with EDT on Delphi?

    Have you tried /TERM_TYPE VT100? (And /SAVE, if it works.)

    I’ve never operated with VT100’s, so I’m sorta guessing…


    P.S. Just enter /HELP FULL to see a listing of all your current settings.

    Use /TERM_TYPE VT100 (or whatever the actual syntax is). Then when EDT
    comes up, enter the ‘c’ command to go to full screen mode. If your screen
    is still screwed up, maybe the width of your line is not set to 80 characters
    or you are operating half-duplex. I just had it working full-screen the
    other day, so I know it can be done.
