Re: Propeller console IO board

Thanks Josh,

I made up a simple MBASIC routine to evaluate some of the VT100 codes.  For example to print a character in BOLD you issue the command ESC[1m. In BASIC this is
PRINT CHR$(27);"[";"1";"m"; : PRINT "BOLD"

When I try this I don't get a bold character but reverse video!  I am basing this result on the fact that I can run a terminal program also, so I have two screen outputs to look at. My terminal program is TeraTerm set to VT100.  Also I looked online for the VT100 codes. The codes that I am trying to get are:
ESC[1m   bold
ESC[4m   underline
ESC[5m   blinking

I can actually follow the state sequence in VT100_Emulator-2.spin, but I get lost after state 4 and can't find where the final character "m" leads to.

Any help would be great

Hi all,

Just finished the propeller console IO board and I have it running with the 8080A CPU board with Josh's rev 2.4 ROM. I downloaded the firmware to run the screen and keyboard as a VT100 terminal. That works pretty well but some of the ESC codes for screen control don't work. Has anyone done any more programming through Parallax on the .spin programs?

Just curious.
