Subject: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: vttest 20220827
Date: Sat, 03 Sep 2022 14:47:19 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <announce.20220903144719.45474-1-Brian.Inglis@SystematicSW.ab.ca> (raw)

The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* vttest    20220827

Tests the functionality of a VT100 terminal (or emulator thereof).
Tests both display (escape sequence handling) and keyboard.
The program is menu-driven and contains full operating instructions.
To run a given menu-item, you enter its number. You can run all
menu-items (for a given level) by entering an asterisk, i.e, '*'.

It has been enhanced to support and test many xterm control and status
escape sequences, and it is mainly used nowadays for testing emulator
compatibility.

See the project home page for more information:

Please see below or read /usr/share/doc/vttest/CHANGES after installation
for details of changes since the last Cygwin release.

20220827 changes:

* modify alternate-screen tests to demonstrate the effect of setting
  color, as well as making their use of DECALN optional.
* fix several minor issues reported by coverity and clang; a couple
  of test results now handle zeroes in status results.
* improve checks for malloc failure, consolidating error-exits to use
  strerror.
* updated/improved configure macros, i.e., for compiler-warnings
* update config.guess
