Display text with special characters on terminal

If your text  has special requirements like backspaces , you should use STTDIS (SCTDIS) instead of STTPUT. This text will not be recorded in the MIDAS logfile .

The text buffer in the interfaces above is not limited to 80 characters. In fact, the routines split the character buffer into chunks of the size of your MIDAS terminal or window.
