I just knew that when the person who started this thread put out his question 
about 400 vs NT that a flood of email was going to start.

     The AS/400 does not support all of the Posix standards. For example
     ASCII terminal types. But it has good support for most of the C
     APIs.

Well, perhaps I was spewing off.  The IBM line is pretty firm on the Posix 
standards.  You probably know more about Posix than I do.  We have some ASCII 
terminals attached to our AS/400's via the ASCII workstation controller.  They 
are extremely unpopular with people familiar with 5250 terminals.  But, on 
AS/400's with all the users on Lan attached PC's and NC's it seemed like a 
reasonable thing at the time for a cheap system console and remote dial in 
support.
