I already got the answer I needed. The answer stemmed from something I had
always wonder what it was for.

My deapest thanks goes to Ted Nolan - you are truely a STAR in my book!

My original question (summary to follow):

        Does anyone know of a Tektronics Graphics Terminal Emulator program that
        runs on a SPARC? I have a user that needs this emulator to run a network
        design program.

The needed answer:

        From: Ted Nolan SRI Ft Gordon <>
        The answer is (probably) yes. Assuming you have OpenWindows 3 (SunOS4.1.3
        or higher), or almost any release of X11 (X11R2, R3, R4, R5, R6 etc), there
        will be a program called "xterm"
        Go into X or OpenWindows and execute xterm (you may need to adjust your
        path to include /usr/openwin/bin). When it comes up, put your cursor in
        the xterm window, and hit the middle mouse button while holding down the
        control key. A menu will pop up. Select the "Switch to Tek mode" option.
        This will open a largish window which emulates a Tektronix 4014 terminal.
        If your software is compatible with a 4014 it should work.

Again thanks goes to Ted!
