TSDSP - transmit data to a terminal.


call tsdsp(length, message)


is an integer variable that must contain the number of characters which are to be transmitted.
is a character variable, composed of no more than 16764 characters. This gives the message to be transmitted.


This subroutine enables a program to transmit a sequence of bytes essentially uninterpreted by the I/O package. This is of particular use when dealing with a VIP terminal in forms mode.


If you really are working with a VIP in forms mode, STX and ETX characters should not occur within the message. TSS will add them as appropriate.

The cursor remains positioned as the result of the last TSDSP transmission.
