here's a patch for terminfo.src that fixes the rev string for tek4107.
The \E%!0 code selects Tek mode and it was missing the !.

The string for "dim" also looks odd.  Is that "<" correct?

It reads
and I'd expect

I was asking, since "tic -cv" on the entry does show that the sgr string
is inconsistent with some of the other capabilities.

I found a manual for 4107/4109 here:


However, it indicates that those supported vt100 and vt52 controls.

Oddly, the terminfo description is using vt52 "cup" (cursor-position), while dim and other controls are wrapped in "\E%!1" and "\E%!0" prefix/suffix, These are "SELECT CODE", on page 4-28 (also 5-59):

 0 selects Tek mode, i.e., \E%!0
 1 selects ANSI mode
 2 selects ANSI edit-mode
 3 selects VT52 mode

Given that it's using ANSI and not VT52, that's a little odd (perhaps
it - or an emulator - is accepting the VT52 controls all the time).
Likewise, the "<" which would indicate a private mode, may be ignored.
