“I chose TERM because it offers a better communications package in terms of dialogue and protocol flexibility. I also found the price within a reasonable range to make it cost effective in the long run.”

In TinyTERM ITX 2, Wyse50 emulation does not always clear the screen as it should. This leaves characters behind from previous screens, causing display problems with new screen display.

Wyse50 emulation does not consistently display graphics characters correctly. In normal use this may not be noticed. Graphics-intensive host applications are likely to have display problems eventually, though.

The Wyse60 terminal supports both a standard and extended status line at the top of the screen. Either shows a system clock and the cursor position by row and column. The extended status line also supports a custom message.
TinyTERM currently supports only the unshifted label line at the bottom of the Wyse60 screen. Century Software, Inc., has had a request to add support for the status line also.

In a host application that uses extensive screen positioning and graphic font display for Wyse60 emulation, TinyTERM will eventually fail to display correctly. Sometimes switching to Wyse50 will fix the display issue, but not always.

Wyse emulations use ^[cA to initiate a character set change, and ^Y to terminate it. TinyTERM always waits for the ^Y before displaying more data, so that the display will use the correct character set.
If the sequence never terminates, TinyTERM never starts displaying text again. This has the appearance of a hang, though the user interface works normally.

The Wyse50 and Wyse60 emulations display protected mode text as reverse on Mac, Linux and iOS devices. This is hard to read in some circumstances. Century Software, Inc., has received a request to allow other options for displaying protected text, similar to the options in TinyTERM for Windows.
In TinyTERM for iPad version 1.2.0, this was updated to display protected mode text in bold.

When using Wyse50 or Wyse60 emulation in TinyTERM for iPad version 1.0, reverse text displays as a solid block instead. This is an initialization error in the text draw. It was corrected in TinyTERM version 1.1.0.

TinyTERM for Windows has a Display DIM attribute as option for Wyse50 and Wyse60 emulations. Century Software, Inc., has had a request to add this functionality to TERM for UNIX/Linux.

Configure TinyTERM for a block cursor and Wyse60 emulation. Connect and have the host send \033`0 to make the cursor disappear. Then have it send \033`1 to make it reappear. The cursor is now blinking.

If you set the Destructive Back Space option in TinyTERM, the Backspace key should erase characters as it moves the cursor. This does not work in Wyse60, TN3270 or TN5250.

CR 759, TN3270 and TN5250, fixed in TinyTERM Plus 4.7.0
