  Description     : Emulation of a VT102 terminal in a Perl data structure

Term::VT102 provides emulates a VT102 terminal in a Perl data
structure. You can print strings and VT102 control sequences to a
VT102 objects and then query the contents of the "virtual screen".
Like expect(1), this is primarily for use as a way of automatig
processes. For instance, it is possible to write a script which
connects via telnet to a full-screen service of some kind (such as a
router, or a telephone switch9, uses this module to parse the output
and therefore can tell what is currently "on the screen" and react
accordingly. Expect(1) cannot really do this, as it is
stream-oriented, rather than being able to tell, say, what's on the
top row of the screen.
