Jerome Fine replies:

I accept that Linux versions of E11 work very well, but I require
one very special feature of the VT100 emulation:
132 character text lines under KED within RT-11
Does E11 under Linux allow this?

I have tried a number of other Windows operating systems, but
with the same hardware, only Windows 98 SE seems to work.
I understand that Windows 95 works as well, but I did not have
the correct AGP board at the time.

One other aspect of the VT100 emulation is that when I use a
standard PC keyboard with the 6 keys above the arrow keys,
I am able to convert them to operate like the 6 EDIT keys on
a VT220 keyboard (LK201). This allows me to use many of
the features of the VT220 / LK201 keyboard. In addition, I
have mapped the F1 - F12 PC keys into F6 - F20 for the
LK201 keyboard (F14 was not possible). As a result, when
I use the SL: (Single Line Editor) under RT-11, I have many
extra features not available on a VT100. I also tested these
features with a real DEC VT220 and the results were very

I would appreciate any help in using Linux with E11 for these
2 aspects I have just mentioned.

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
