Wow, an actual VT-100! Have you tried "smooth scrolling" (aka "barf 
mode")? AFAIK none of the emulators (or "VT100-compatible" iron, for 
that matter) ever bothered to replicate this (for which hackers prone to 
motion sickness remain grateful 🤢)


P.S.: Fond memories of the USENIX where Rob Pike, in a talk describing 
the Blit, announced "and [pause] it is NOT VT-100 compatible", to 
thunderous applause. A lot of termcap tweakers in that audience...
