Abstract : This specification established the detailed design of a computer program identified as the Virtual Terminal (VT). One of the objectives of the IISS test bed is to allow applications to be run from a wide variety of terminals. Instead of the application programmer having to worry about what commands to send to which type of terminal to perform what functions, he just uses commands for the VT. The VT is defined just like a real terminal; it has a set of functions which it can perform, a set of attributes that it supports, a set of commands for invoking the functions and modes of operation.
