|Prior to ComputerCraft 1.6, term.native is a table pointer leading to the original "term" table (that is to say, the basic "term" API used to render to a given computer's own display). In cases where scripts have redirected to an alternate display (eg.: a monitor), generally term.restore() can be used to switch back, but depending on the amount of redirects performed that may not lead to the original terminal with a single call - use of term.redirect(term.native) will generally hop back in one go.|
As of ComputerCraft 1.6, term.native is no longer a table but a function pointer, which must be called in order to receive the desired table back - for eg.: term.redirect(term.native()) should be expected to return to the default display. Bear in mind that in most cases, you'll want to restore to whatever display you originally redirected from - term.current() can be used to help track that.
Note that this change breaks backwards compatibility with scripts that assume term.native's prior identity.
