tn5250 is a 5250 terminal emulator, used for connecting to IBM's AS/400 (now known as eServer iSeries) midrange computers. tn5250 implements TN5250E, which means it is capable of device name selection, and printer sessions. The emulator supports color, 132 column mode, and most other features found in 5250 terminals and Client Access' 5250 emulator. While tn5250 is text-based application, a script is included to run it in an xterm properly. If you don't know what an AS/400 is, this program will probably not be of much use to you.
