RE: [N8VEM-S100:6541] Re: Propeller console IO board

Hi,  Yes, ver 2.4 is the same as 2.3, but it corrects the display of the bad ram location.  In ver 2.3, when a bad ram location is found in the system ROM area F000-FFFF, the address reported is in correct because the firmware nukes the HL register.  Ver 2.4 saves the HL register and reports the correct address.  I was thinking of making more revisions and fixes, so I didn't bother to officially release 2.4...  but I can upload it, as is, if you like.

My EPROM programmer is not working so when I needed to get the FW for the console IO I paid Josh for the new version 2.3. However he also included another EPROM with version 2.4. The only difference between the two is that in version 2.4 you can also have a terminal running through the serial IO of the CPU board. Anyway, I don't know if Josh has actually finalized version 2.4.  If he is following this thread he may comment.

As far as the ESC codes go I just used BASIC to construct the VT100 terminal codes that I found online.  Unfortunately the VT100 emulation that I downloaded and compiled with the consoleIO.spin does not have all of the codes. They could be added if I understood the program well enough.

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.
