It generally consists of some type of keyboard (numeric, alphabetic, or both), and some type of display (ranging from paper, to a CRT screen, to an LED display such as you might find on a calculator). It allows you, with the proper connections, to communicate with a computer. Thus, you used some sort of terminal when requesting HELP on TERMINAL. If you need HELP in establishing communications between your terminal and Locke Computer, here are a few hints: a) your terminal MUST transmit ASCII encoded characters b) you will usually need an RS232C cable to connect your terminal to the modem (or to the cable jack if 'hardwired') c) you will usually need 'full duplex' on (or you can give the monitor command 'set tty no echo' when connected) d) if you're running at 300 baud (bits per second) or above, you need to send 8 data bits (7 for the ASCII character, and 1 for parity - parity is ignored, but must be present), 1 start bit, and 1 stop bit (for 10 bits total) If you're running at below 300 baud, add an extra stop bit. e) your terminal must be 'on line' f) if you are using a modem, see HELP PHONES for the appropriate phone number (or look in the user's guide) g) if you have any difficulty, call a consultant at 543-9275 If you are considering buying a terminal and would like some advice, call a consultant at 543-9275.
