No, HP block-mode is specific to the HP 2640/A video terminal and its
descendants. To begin with the terminal uses ASCII encoding whereas
the 3270 is, well, IBM; and that means EBCDIC, which is like nothing
else in the known universe.

The Source Forge links to the code and svn repository are defunct
(surprise!, surprise!, surprise!). Fortunately, I have the tarball for
Freevt3k as of AD 2009. That is the last time anyone worked on the
code base to my knowledge.  If I cannot get anything else then I will
try and build ithat on FreeBSD.
