This template is for creating an infobox for a particular terminal.

The parameters are all named. Two of the parameters, manufacturer and model, are required and must match the PAGENAME of the article. All other parameters can be omitted and will result in no associated displayed information.

Parameter Meaning
manufacturer (required) The name of the manufacturer, as categorized on the wiki. The name will be linked to the category page for the manufacturer. Detailed information about the manufacturer is given on it's category page, including links to any pages on Wikipedia for the company if they exist.
model (required) The model name of the terminal. In some cases the model name is reported inconsistently in different references, including different text from the manufacturer. Use a model name taxonomy that is consistent across all terminals from the same manufacturer. For instance, some documentation from [:Category:DEC] refers to the DEC VT100 as VT100 and some refers to it as VT-100.
intro_prior If non-empty, will result in the phrase prior to being prepended to the introduction date
intro_month The name of the month when the terminal was introduced, if known. This may be prior to the date when the terminal was actually available for shipment, as an announcement of the terminal may be made prior to it first being shipped as a product.
intro_year The year in which the terminal was introduced.
