# Terminal ESC Sequence Decoder

The goal of this code is to read-in a stream of terminal ESC sequences, and break them down and fill a vector of parameterized sequences for processing later on.

For example ESC[5C would be filled in the vector as:

Vector[0] = C
Vector[1] = 5


Colors for example ESC[0;44;32m

Vector[0] = m
Vector[1] = 0
Vector[2] = 44
Vector[3] = 32


This way I can always check vector [0] for the control character, then the following for it's separated parameters.

Most of the Xterm sequences are not yet supported, but their sequences are noted in the case statements for later implementation.

I use a state machine with processing levels to move along each sequences each level should move to the next expected control character.

Just looking for some general feedback on design or if anyone notices any issues or oversights on my part.

• Excellent first question. Welcome to Code Review! And nice escample. =) – 200_success Feb 7 '16 at 8:51
• Would you mind telling us what standard or reference document you used for developing this code? – 200_success Feb 7 '16 at 8:52
• Sure, I followed the following URL for a complete list of Xterm Control Sequences: xfree86.org/4.8.0/ctlseqs.html – Mercyful Feb 7 '16 at 14:52
• There is already a library out there that has all the control sequences for all the different types of terminal man termlib You may want to use that to decode the control sequence for the current terminal (which you can find by query the environment variable TERM). – Martin York Feb 7 '16 at 15:11
• Loki, Thanks for your feed back, but I'm creating a cross-platform terminal and telnet application. Termlib wouldn't be valid in Windows. – Mercyful Feb 7 '16 at 15:18

I see a number of things that may help you improve your code. First, though, let me say that the comments are excellent and greatly ease understanding the code. Keep that up!

## Simplify the parser

The parser uses large switch statements and multiple named level parsers to decode. While the code is probably reasonably efficient (most of the bulk is comments), it does make things harder to read and maintain. An alternative approach would be to move from a code-centric to a data-centric model. In particular, if your compiler supports C++11, it seems that a std::unordered_set would be a good match. If, for some reason, your compiler does not support such constructs, you could build your own trie structure.

Another option would be to re-examine the various switch statements. For example, the 354-line processSequenceLevel1() function could be replaced with this equivalent code:

void SequenceDecoder::processSequenceLevel1()
{
static const std::string valid{"@ABCDEFGHIJKLMPSTXZabcdefghilmnpqrstux!"};
static const std::string nextlevel("? "};
if(m_sequence == ';' || std::isdigit(m_sequence)) {
return;
}
if (std::string::npos != valid.find(m_sequence) {
m_is_sequence_completed = true;
} else if (std::string::npos != nextlevel.find(m_sequence) {
++m_sequence_level;
} else {
m_is_invalid_sequence = true;
}
}


## Reduce the scope of variables

There are a number of member variables that do not really need to exist. For example, m_is_sequence could instead be a local variable within decodeEscSequenceData instead of a member value. This makes the object less complex and the code easier to understand and maintain.

## Remember to unlock resources

We don't have the code for session.hpp but in several points in the code we see code like this:

session_ptr session = m_weak_session.lock();


However, there does not appear to be a matching unlock() call anywhere. Unless this is implicitly handled by the session` object, that could be a problem.

• Thank for the feed-back it's been very helpful. A note on the lock, boost::weak_ptr pointers automatically unlock and expire as soon as they leave scope. There is no unlock for them but it's best to keep them in small area scopes outside of loops unless encapsulated. – Mercyful Feb 7 '16 at 15:30
• Agree with making the parser simpler. If you use flex you will get a much more efficient parser generated for you. Also the code will be easier to read and verify it is correct. – Martin York Feb 8 '16 at 4:39
