System Builder Escape Sequences
MacWise supports some of the special escape sequences used by the SBClient PC terminal emulator.
1. Save and Restore Screens
Many host computers are programmed to instruct the client app to save and restore screens.
2. Launching a web browser or email or a file
ESC _ D& (normally terminated with ESC _\ )
Example host programs:
NOTE: If the URL does not contain http or mailto, then MacWise attempts to open a document on your Mac. For instance...
NOTE 1: Forward slash characters are not allowed. Backslash OK.
NOTE 2: There are no error messages generated if the host has supplied an incorrect command for the URL or file.
3. Who am I ?
ESC _ W (normally terminated with ESC _\ )
MacWise responds with MacWise Version / Emulation type / Sesion Title /
ESC _W& (normally terminated with ESC _\ )
Same as ESC _W but accepts BUFFER command from host
