Thread: How do I return text from a scroll region on a VT series terminal

    Default How do I return text from a scroll region on a VT series terminal

    Hi all,
    I have a VT-520 amd would like to be able to return all text from a scroll region to my program.
    I was hoping that someone with some experiance would know the correct CSI to send or if it is a different command.
    I have a copy of the manual but in typical 'me' form can't make heads or tails of that section.

    Thanks

    Looks like you have to be in an emulation mode for one of the non-DEC terminal types before the commands in Chapter 12 are usable. I didn't see any obvious command in the DEC command set to transmit the screen contents.

    I believe the key combination to scroll up and down depends on the operating system? Or are you trying to read screen output to a file for a program to read, because that's definitely dependent on the operating system and the program itself.
