Hi,

I added the code to do this into CVS & also updated the tarball on my
web site.

It only works from the config file (not from the command-line, since that
looked a bit more complicated to do) so to use it you'll make a tn5250rc
file similar to:

test {
    host = as400
    env.DEVNAME=$loginname$01
    font_80=Terminal
}

and then run:
    tn5250 test

Keep in mind, of course, that OS/400 device names cannot exceed 10 chars
in length.

Have fun!
