UNIX status bar

Status bar area Function
Communications interface Displays the communications interface you have selected, the server name (if applicable), and indicates whether the session is connected to the host.
Terminal type Shows the type of VT this session is emulating, and other types of status information applicable to the terminal. Information appears if the terminal is in hold or wait conditions, is off-line, or if you are composing a character sequence.
Cursor coordinates Lists the row and column position of the cursor. If you are using VT420 emulation, it also indicates the page number.
Numeric/ Application mode Toggles the state of the terminal's numeric keypad between numeric mode and application mode (which is not the same as the PC NUMLOCK feature).
Clock Displays the time.
