The name was VT50PY, or DISPLY, or something like that.

In V10.1, that program would do ANSI escape sequences if the terminal
appeared to be a VT100 or above (i.e., a scope with XON support and no
fill). But, judging by the sources, that wasn't available before
V10.1. So you can change the code :-) or you can track down an xterm
with VT52 escape support, or you could add it to xterm (VT52 escapes
are pretty simple...)
