The second sentence of the first paragraph of the synopsis is sufficient to persuade me that even if vttest is a useful and effective program, it needs to be either replaced, or forked by someone who doesn't laud knowledge-hiding.

That sentence doesn't strike me as endorsing knowledge hiding, so much as not wanting to maintain a duplicate (and likely outdated) description of the tested functionality beyond that embodied in the source code. A quick look at the xterm ctlseqs document will typically provide enough information to fix a vttest failure.

Thanks for pointing out the ctlseqs.txt document:

If I ever knew about it, I'd forgotten. I think it's interesting that all of the tektronix and vt52 stuff is only the last 6% or so of this long file.
