HELP VEDWYSE                                       A. Sloman 3 Sept 1984

This file describes preliminary conversion of VED to drive a WYSE VDU
emulating Televideo 925.


This package is provided for user convenience. It is not supported, and
it may change.

The following assumes 16 function keys, F1 to F16, which transmit
    ESC char
    UNSHIFTED: char = A to P
    SHIFTED:   char = ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = { }

If the function keys are not programmed in this way it is necessary to
program them.

Then there are 6 more keys which don't seem to work yet

        KEY             : FUNCTION
        Char Insert     :
        Char Delete     :
        Line Insert     :
        Line Delete     :
        Line Erase      :
        Page Erase      :

The four Arrow function keys produce small moves in the appropriate
direction. When preceeded by ESC they cause a "window-sized" move up
down left or right.

FUNC key doesn't work
