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:
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

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?
