    If you ask me, the only sane answer is Kermit. Kermit-8 or Kermit-12 on the PDP-8 side, and whatever you want for Kermit on the other side. Or...

    bqt replied to a thread VT52 vs VT100: differences? in DEC
    Huh. Well, in that case a VT100 won't work either... But yes, there are also some things a VT100 can do, which a VT52 can't which forces more...

    bqt replied to a thread VT52 vs VT100: differences? in DEC
    If you talk about the pressing of a key on the VT100 (which do not have an LCD to start with), then the VT100 have no "intelligence" at all in...

    Define "acceptable". Will programs that try to steer your terminal as if it were a VT100 get acceptable output? Depends on what the program tries to...

    Of course a xterm works in VT52 mode, if started and being told it should emulate a VT52. You seem to totally miss the point that it takes two to...

    As the footnote of that document states: This list is not complete. :-) It is a subset of what a VT100 can do.

    What do you mean? If you send them, you send them. If you are asking what happens if you press those keys on a VT100, they will cause those two...

    Yes. You are missing that *your terminal* must also be a VT52. Every program will "go nut" if you just tell them that you have a VT52 when you don't....

    Of course not. Because nano will then try to control your terminal as if it were a VT52. But your terminal don't suddenly become a VT52 because of...

    There is none. The ESC key sends just an ESC. Which means you can "fake" the uparrow key by pressing ESC [ A, for example. Although you'll probably...

    Which they are on all DEC systems. But sure, I don't know about LINCtape. That might be a different trick.

    What do you mean by ""export TERM=vt52" doesn't seem good at the moment with nano"? There are big differences between a VT100 and a VT52. The VT52...

    Other DECtape controllers can also read tapes from other systems.

    Please no. The TD8E is the most stupid interface in the universe. But then again, maybe that makes sense. USB comes in as a worthy second-worst.

    Correct. If the code is in page 0, you can address the locations in page 0 both with and without the Z bit set. And the 6120 don't increment the...
