Description of problem:
R/M Companion (Commercial Addon for R/M Cobol) fails to display correct
colors and characters. TERM=ansi does not function correctly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install standard version of product
2. Log in via Telnet (with a variety of clients)
3. verify TERM=ansi setting via SET and tset
4. Run application ..
5. Vendor has used and tested on 6.2 RH, not on 7.X
Actual Results: Screens displayed so incorrect colors and ANSI line
drawing characters are shown as FOREIGN equivalents
Expected Results: Screens in the color provided by vender, line drawing
characters shown AS line drawing characters
Our termcap entry matches the ansi description, so this is probably their
problem and not ours. Maybe they're depending on the incompleteness of some
Are there changes from RH ver 6.2 to ver 7.1 in the termcap datafiles and
routines.. because 6.2 works as expected....
