It's the first time I write to a group, so probably I'll make a lot of errors.

I have a problem with the ACU-COBOL runtime, a Cobol compiler for ms-dos,
xenix, IBM AIX and other computers (I use it under SCO XENIX).

I need to display a sequence of special characters (they are "ESC" "(" "0" )
on the terminal (in vt100 emulation), and I use the DISPLAY command with a
string of this special characters (this sequence active the graphic mode).

For some reason, when I execute the compiled program, the ESC takes no
effect. I see "(0" on the video and the vt100 remains in normal character

This is a very specific question, so I suppose that only a few people can
help me. Can you help me in find these experts? How can I find more

(My version of ACU-COBOL is 1.4)

Thank you.
