SWISS UNIX SOFTWARE DEVELOPER WORKSTATION AG HAS ACTIVE TERMINAL EMULATORS COVERING THE GAMUT

By CBR Staff Writer

Workstation AG, a Unix software company that is based in Lattbrugg, Switzerland, has launched a range of terminal emulation packages for Unix workstations. Three packages emulating Digital Equipment Corp’s VT protocols, IBM Corp’s 3170 and Unisys Corp’s UTS mainframe terminals on DEC, Hewlett-Packard Co, IBM, NeXT Computer Inc, Silicon Graphics Inc, Sun Microsystems Inc and generic Intel Corp 80486-based environments are currently available, with support for other systems planned for the future. All the terminal emulators are fully integrated within their respective window systems, says the company, claiming that this is an advantage over existing passive emulators, since all the control and status indicators of the original terminal can be set in their original meter windows. Cut and paste between the emulation window and other windows on the workstations is also possible, it says. Terminal windows can also be customised for a user’s needs, even allowing for the remapping of the terminal onto buttons on the Unix workstation screen. Pricing depends on the emulations required. A demo version costs $100.
