Topic Description
  Subroutine to set "pretty-printing" variables for different terminals.

  Known terminal types are "DEC", "NON-DEC", and "TEK".

  Symbol that is checked is LOG_TERM.
  If symbol is not set, the "Null" values are passed.
  Specifically, if the terminal does not support VT-100 or Tek 4014 escape 
    sequences, then these symbols should not (or need not) be set.
  This subroutine is called through the 
  statement in your source code.
  "a" = argument, "r" = referenced, "s" = set

  call vescinit                         (with the following arguments)

  getsymbol           (shared DRS external routine) 

  getmode             (shared DRS external routine) 
  char                (FORTRAN intrinsic function)  

  New terminal types can be added by inserting a new layer in the 

  IF-THEN-ELSE structure and modifying DRS$UTIL:GETERMINL.COM
  so that it sets symbol LOG_TERM to a different value.
  Symbols were used, instead of system calls, to allow greater
  flexibility in defining future terminal types.
  If either symbol is not set, the "Null" values are passed
  (ie:  not using the above .COMs doesn't bomb the program).
  The above .COMs are normally run automatically when logging in.
  Although this program has been used by the U.S. Geological Survey,

  no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by the Survey as to the
  accuracy and functioning of the program and related program
  material nor shall the fact of distribution constitute any such
  warranty, and no responsibility is assured by the Survey in
  connection therewith.
