The VT100 had a specific series of escape sequences. Memory is fuzzy on timing/ordering, but we ended up with an ANSI standard for terminal escape sequences that is mostly the same as VT100. There are some DEC things in vt100 but not ANSI, and later ANSI grew color support (VT100, VT220, VT320 are monochrome) xterm tries to implement the ansi sequences, more or less. I am not aware of a way to make it be exactly vt100. So if you want a true VT100 emulation, you will either have to tell xterm to be faithful to vt100 (TERM=vt100 tells programs to generate vt100 codes), or find some other terminal emulator which is switchable. What are you really trying to accomplish? Are you looking to see if our xterm has bugs?
