x3270

A Family of IBM 3270 Terminal Emulators

This package contains a family of IBM 3270 mainframe terminal emulators: * terminal emulators for interactive use x3270 X Window System c3270 curses based * terminal emulators for scripted use s3270 see the x3270-script man page tcl3270 Tcl based * printer emulator pr3287 * do not miss the punch card puncher emulator x026 x3270 is an IBM 3270 terminal emulator for the X Window System. x3270 runs over a telnet connection (with or without TN3270E) and emulates either an IBM 3279 (color) or 3278 (monochrome). It supports APL2 characters, IND$FILE file transfer, NVT mode, a pop-up keypad for 3270-specific keys, alternative keymaps, 3287 printer sessions, and a scrollbar and has extensive debugging and scripting facilities. x3270a is a script that computes the correct font sizes for higher-resolution displays, then runs x3270. (x3270 handles scaling of visual elements automatically, but it cannot adjust the font sizes by itself.) b3270 is a generic back-end for 3270 emulators. It implements the 3270 protocol and host input/output, and communicates with a front end application using a simple XML-based protocol. c3270 is the curses-based version of x3270. It runs on any dumb terminal (an xterm or a console, for example), and supports (almost) all of the x3270 features. c3270 scripts are compatible with x3270 scripts, and the subset of command line options and resource definitions are also compatible. s3270 is a scripting-only version of x3270. This program is intended primarily for writing "screen-scraping" applications, for example a CGI back-end script that retrieves database information from a mainframe. tcl3270 is a Tcl-based 3270 scripting engine. It lets you write Tcl scripts that manipulate 3270 sessions, and is quite a bit easier to set up and use than s3270. pr3287 is the printer companion for the above tools, and allows printer output from a 3270 session to be directed to a Unix printer queue. x026 is a fun toy which emulates an x026 puncher.
