TERM$

System variable: TERM$
Length: 3
Description: The system variable named TERM$ contains the identification number of the terminal for the current program. This value is a three-byte string in the form "Tnn", where "nn" is a value from "00" to "99".

When a program is running in a foreground partition, the value of TERM$ is identical to ITERM$. However, for a program running in a background partition, TERM$ will contain a null value and ITERM$ will contain the identification number of the terminal initiating the background process.
