Happy New Year everybody!

Another document hunt.  Does anybody know where the EPICS DCT Primer 2.0 Alarm
Specification is held?  None of the usual Web sites have it and the Lycos
search engine failed to turn up a single reference (in 17 million URLs).  We
wish to raise alarms in an OPI, independently of alh, by using colour rules, 
and we have no idea how to manipulate the fields in, for instance, an ao recordin order to achieve the desired effect.  

There are problems here at ROE in using dct.  What does one have to do to get
curses to work in an xterm?  We tried creating the 100x72 xterm window as
recommended in the Users Guide but could not get any response from the arrow
keys or any of the other control keys on a Sun console and obtained faulty
cursor positions in an xterm on a PC.  Explicitly setting TERM to vt100 or
vt100-w did not help.
