DEC MCS Translation font 6 Months ago  
Hi,

I'm trying the Absolute Telnet as a simple telnet client for is scripting possibilities but I'm unable get it work on one connection to an old terminal.

I got a scramble of character instead of text. The difference I can see it's the translation character set :

On PuttyTel it's DEC-MCS and work well.

On AbsoluteTelnet anything I choose, I can't get it work. It's totally unreadable.

I know that DEC MCS character set is not really new but any plan to add it or any known workaround ?

I can consider adding it but will need your help validating and testing.

It isn't exactly that common in practical use.

Hi Brian,

I can test if you add it.

Simply send me a test version by email.

Can you send me a logfile with some sample data and a screen snapshot of what it's supposed to look like?

Use File->Open LOG before opening a session and File->CLose LOG after you see the garbage on the screen. ZIP the logfile and email it to me at bpence@celestialsoftware.net

Also take a screen snapshot and include that in the email as well.

Then, I can take a look and see what's necessary.

I'm interested in the DEC-MCS translation too.
Especially the German NCS.

This would be great

Patrick,



It's taken some time, but I think I've gotten DEC-MCS character code translation to work. You can now select it under Options->Properties->Appearance->Translation



Try this out:
