Yep, but the reason I said "I don't understand" was that wIntegrate is a
terminal emulator. And xterm is a terminal emulator (well, near as

Isn't it a bit daft to emulate an emulator? If you like wIntegrate, just
run that in a wine box and tell the app you're using wIntegrate.

But if you want to know about writing wit files, I wrote the pt200/pt250
files that shipped with wIntegrate 4. I guess they haven't altered since
... ask me and if I can remember I'll help with any problems.

Not sure.  I will compare the infocmp output on the two and see.

For various historical reasons, we are currently using a hacked version
of the wyse60 emulation.  This works OK with our U2 app but fails on any
other app that properly uses terminfo.  We could hack the terminfo as
well but of course the correct thing to do is get our use of eumlations

As we are moving to Linux at the moment I thought I would take the
opportunity to look at this and xterm and linux are common terminal
types (Putty emulates an xterm).  What I would like is to have
wintegrate correctly emulate either xterm or linux type terminals.  The
way to do this would seem to create my own wit file but I was wondering
if someone had already been down this road and would mind sharing.
