The application sends terminal escape sequences to control terminal behavior. When running in standard mode it works correctly. In debug mode the escape codes are not interpreted but look like they are simply displayed on the screen. This occurred after upgrading from version 7.0 to 9.1.


In version 8.0.0 the handling of terminal escape sequences was modified to fix an issue where they interfered with the debugger window in some cases. A new configuration variable, ANSI_OUTPUT_IN_DEBUG, was also added to provide the old behavior. To resolve this issue set ‘ANSI_OUTPUT_IN_DEBUG’ to ‘TERMINAL’ either in the environment or in the Runtime configuration file. It may not be set programmatically as it must be applied before the terminal is initialized.
