Vivado SDK - SDK Terminal Emulator does not handle VT100 escape sequences

Description

When using the terminal emulator built into SDK, escape codes might not be handled correctly. 

For example, using the clear screen escape sequence, more lines can be cleared than expected. 

How do I properly view VT100 escape sequences?

Solution

The terminal emulator in SDK does not support true VT100 escape sequences. 

To properly view them, consider using a 3rd party terminal emulator such as TeraTerm which provides an option for VT100 emulation.

Instructions for installing TeraTerm are included in (UG1036) Tera Term Terminal Emulator Installation Guide.
