Terminal Emulation Help!!


I need a parser to parse the esc sequences obtained from the server during terminal emulation.

I am writing an application similar to that of PUTTY.

Each character typed is echoed to the server. In case of VT100 and ANSI terminals I am receiving different sequences interspersed with ESC sequences. I need a parser/state machine to parse the same.

Please Help!!

Thanks in Advance!
