Not really knowing anything about 5250s other than they are a terminal,
what do you mean by "dumb head"?
In the early 80s a Project DELTA colleague told me that IBM had made
some system where the terminal was essentially a keyboard and a tube
and the host computer essentially did everything. Is the 5250 that
beast? If so, where can I read details about it?
