;;; Commentary:
;; The functions contained in this file send various VT control codes
;; to the terminal where emacs is running. The following functions are
;; available.
;; Function Action
;; vt-wide set wide screen (132 characters)
;; vt-narrow set narrow screen (80 characters)
;; vt-toggle-screen toggle wide/narrow screen
;; vt-keypad-on set applications keypad on
;; vt-keypad-off set applications keypad off
;; vt-numlock toggle applications keypad on/off
;;; Usage:
;; To use enable these functions, simply load this file.
;; Note: vt-control makes no effort to determine how the terminal is
;; initially set. It assumes the terminal starts with a width
;; of 80 characters and the applications keypad enabled. Nor
;; does vt-control try to restore the terminal when emacs is
;; killed or suspended.
