Define Your Terminal (VMS)
To define your terminal in VMS, use the following command:
define TERM_INGRES termname
where termname is the designation for your terminal type, as listed in Terminal Names (see page Terminal Names).
For example, if you have a VT100 terminal, and you want to be able to use the arrow keys as cursor movement keys and the keypad keys as definable function keys, the list under Terminal Names tells you that vt100i is the proper designation. To define your terminal accordingly to Ingres, execute the following command:
define term_ingres vt100i
In most VAX/VMS installations, VT100 and VT220 terminals are prevalent. We recommend the vt100i designation for VT100 terminals and the vt220i designation for VT220 terminals.
