First of all, a big thank you to the developers of FreeAXP.
I thought there was a problem with the terminal driver. I was wrong. Everything works fine, and I have been able to successfully build/run test applications using FreeAXP. Loaded on a laptop, this will be a great tool for a programmer on the move.
By VT terminal driver, do you mean the disconnectable terminal driver that can optionally be enabled?
I have that enabled and I am not seeing any issues with extra carriage return characters being input with programs that use SMG or other programs.
If you mean VT terminals, or ANSI compatible, and the standard actually has a new name that I can not remember at the moment, then that is just the standard terminal driver.
Most terminals and terminal emulators can be configured to add a carriage return to the output when they receive a line feed. VMS (and Linux by default) do not want that option enabled as it will cause the symptoms that you describe.
That option is off by default on most modern terminal emulators, it is mainly used on half/duplex connections.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
