The DTKTERM environment variable defines the key map’s terminal type, identifying the key map to use.

Value

The type of terminal you are using. This can be a user‑defined name for a key map that you’ve created or one of the following distributed key maps:

ANSI

UNIX console

GENERIC

Unknown terminal type

HFT

IBM high‑function terminal

IBMPC

PC

MSWINDOWS

Windows

VT100

VTxxx terminal

WY60

Wyse‑60 and compatibles

XTERM

X‑Windows terminals

Discussion

A key map file contains key maps for one or more terminal types. When you install Synergy/DE, you assign your default terminal type to the DTKTERM environment variable. Then, when the U_START subroutine initializes the window system, it opens the key map file and loads the key map for the terminal type defined in DTKTERM.

If DTKTERM is not set, the value of TERM is used instead.

Setting location

The environment. On Windows, this environment variable can also be set in the [synergy], [dbr], or [myprog] section of synergy.ini (where myprog is any .dbr file).

Used by

UI Toolkit, Repository, ReportWriter.
