Linux to Unix problem

By homerga ·
: hi. we have instaled a server Unix 5.0.4, running aplication in RMCOBOL 85. Getting access from linux Redhat 6.1, but it did not work the funtions keys F1 to F5 with any emulator (we have proved wiht VT100, ansi, VT220, wich one we get a better result of our requeriment was vt220d , but it reconigzed pushing the keys CTRL+A since CTRL+E respectly, we would like to know how do we have to do that the key funtions work correctly. The another thing is with the aplications screen cobols, we can not run aplication cobol and the sysadmsh with the same emulator, we just get the aplication screen in bad status and it does?nt work well (F1-F5).

Linux to Unix problem

I had a problem with keys in linux to not exactly like yours however my solution may work for you too. In my case the backspace key as well as some others wouldn't work correctly. The answer to my problem was to remap the keys.

More info on thiscan be found at:
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Keyboard-and-Console-HOWTO-5.html#ss5.8

I know this is not going to be much help if any to your problem but hope it gives you a start.

One work-around for the F key problem is to use Escape and the number keys. For F1 press Esc and 1 together. This is an undocumented "feature" on AIX, but it may work for you too.
