FWIW: If what you found was the source to tn5250.sourceforge.net -- then it's code that I wrote :-)

Also, our commercial (browser-based) "screen scraper" tool that implements 5250 emulation also supports STRPCCMD... as do almost all emulators I've ever used (MochaSoft, Rumba, etc, and of course the IBM ones such as Personal Communications and Access Client Solutions, etc.)

So, no, it's not just the IBM ones... pretty much everyone supports this. Though, it's not documented anywhere that I know of, it's not too difficult to figure out by looking at what gets sent over the network...

Fascinating. I've just been sent (privately) a link that eventually led
me to some open source C code that processes the STRPCCMD data stream.

Most curious: just an ordinary screen that, if the emulator supports
STRPCCMD, gets intercepted instead of being displayed. Not some
not-publicly-documented WSF or WDSF.
