The VT100 interface uses two basic types of screens: menu and data. Menu
screens provide a moving bar type of selection interface, and might also contain
update fields. Data screens may contain general purpose entry fields and update
fields, including array update fields that can be scrolled. You can edit an entry

sysName in the upper left corner (first 25 characters)
IP address in the upper right corner
