I suspect I misunderstood the manual when it said "Use VT50DPY for
vt50,vt52 and vt100 terminals."

The manual also mentions command options like /24 (use 24 lines instead
of 12) and /DCA (use cursor
control instead of spacing) but I am not sure how to supply those via
the run command as in
run $vt50dpy /24 /dca

like that? It complains that it can't find some file, where run
$vt50dpy starts up fine.

I suppose I need to make a CCL.. right? :^)
