Hello, we have written several updates/fixes/extra features for
tn5250. We would like to contribute these patches back to the
community. Some may be specific to our company only, but most are
generic. Most are for the 'windows' version (winterm.c) but also work
under wine.

Awesome. As Scott said, if your patches are small enough please post
directly to the mailing list, use unified diff format, and diff against
latest cvs.

These include:
Auto update function. (GUP integration)
Destructive Backspace option

This is already in CVS.

Toggle for Destructive Backspace and

Toggle meaning change without restarting the session?

Toggle for PC/ Terminal switch. (switches ctrl and enter keys)
Crosshairs Menu, which toggles horizontal, vertical, or both
Fixed a PrintScreen Key issue on wine/linux.
Some improvements to the 'walking' problem with switching between 132
and 80 column non-maximized.
Added tc5250rc file switches to accommodate all of these changes.
Including one that disables the update function. We are actually
running tn5250 on linux using wine, because the windows version is
so much better than the linux version with regard to fonts.
SetupSettingsFile option which calls an HTA application (real windows
only) that sets up the tn5250rc file specific to our needs
automatically. Will not be including this file, but I will leave the
function in. If need be I can send a stripped down HTA if you would
like a template.

There may be another fix or two in there as well.
Anyways, what I want to know, is how do we send these to Scott/James ?
for review and possibly added to the code for future versions? If the
current maintainer would email me so we can discuss the best method.

These sound great. I look forward to your posts!

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 :)
