Meshugena V1.0 -- A **VT220 terminal emulator
By Michael S. Leibow
OVERVIEW (tiny changes by M.Ramsch)
This is not a general communications package. If you need some of the
features of other general packages such as
o one zillion emulations
o one zillion file transfer methods
o weird character sets (i.e. EBCDIC)
then this program is not for you. This program is dedicated to those
of you have already bought an Amiga, a modem, and need to communicate
with some sort of computer that supports the 8 bit ANSI protocol.
This program offers:
o VT220 emulation (80 and 132 columns)
Not a fake emulation... This emulation covers everything I could
find in the VT220 owners manual except the printer stuff.
+ 7 and 8 bit character sets
+ Multinational Character Sets (c0, c1, GL, and GR)
+ Special Graphics set
+ emulates full LK201 keyboard (VT52, VT100, VT220)
+ VT52, VT100, and VT220 compatibility
+ terminal modes : (KAM, IRM, SRM, LNM, DECCKM, DECANM, DECCOLM,
DECSCLM, DECSCNM, DECAWM, DECARM)
+ All character renditions : (off, bold, underscore, blinking,
reverse, erasable, not_erasable)
+ All Line Renditions : (normal, double width, double height).
+ ANSI tab stuff.
