I have a requirement to run a program on an HP3000 computer that runs
a Hewlett-Packard (HP) proprietary screen manager (VPLUS) for its user
interface.  This character based screen manager in turn depends upon a
terminal that understand HP Block-Term commands.  The only block mode
HP terminal that we have left is the system console for said computer.
I would rather run this program from my desktop.

HP provides/provided a Unix based terminal emulator for their block
mode terminals called HPTERM.

My question is a forlorn hope but just in case one exists: does anyone
know whether or not this program, or a functional clone of it, exists
for FreeBSD?
