Thanks, I created a .tn5250rc file and it works great. One thing I noticed
is that the display is in 24x80 mode until I run something that can make use
of the 132 column mode. The first time I tried it, I thought it didn't work
until I tried running SEU. When exited, it returns to 24x80.

What is 'cursor progression'?

Cursor progression is a feature that allows the cursor to move in a sequence other that upper left to lower right. Suppose you have two columns on a screen and you want the cursor to move straight down the left column and then straight down the right column instead of moving from one column to the next before moving down a row. You can specify the DDS keyword FLDCSRPRG in the screen file to instruct the cursor which field the cursor should move to when it exits the current field. In order for this to work the terminal must tell the host that it supports that feature. That is what the +enhanced keyword in .tn5250rc does.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
