Abstract: The RSTS/E 3277 Display Emulator allows a RSTS/E user to access CICS/VS, IMS/VS, and TSO on an IBM System/370 from a Digital video terminal.

The RSTS/E 3277 Display Emulator uses existing VT-100 or VT-52 keys to perform the same tasks as the IBM 3277 program function keys. If the Digital user is using a VT100 with the Advanced Video Option. then the screen will perform reverse video highlighting or protected fields.


The RSTS/E 3277 Display Emulator implements an optional log file which will trace and record all incoming messages from the IBM system.

The RSTS/E 3277 Display Emulator can be temporarily suspended while the Digital terminal user switches back to the RSTS/E monitor. Later, the Digital user can re-enter the IBM application at the same point where it had been suspended.

The file created with any RSTS/E editor can be transmitted to the IBM system as though it were being entered on an IBM 3277 Display Station. The RSTS/E 3277 Display Emulator will operate through DECnet/E with Network Command Terminal Support.
