By lamb-duhux16vt is a UTF-8 and somewhat ANSI compatible terminal emulator for
Currently the only useable "serial" port uses LOAD & SAVE to communicate between
the X16 emulator and a glue process that moves data in and out of a POSIX
In the emulator LOAD "UX16VT.PRG" & RUN. On the host, compile and run
## Unicode Support
ux16vt supports up to 4096 1-bit 8x16 pixel glyphs selected at compile time from
the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane. Unknown characters are displayed as blank.
Currently 672 of these glyphs are used covering 862 different code points. The
following blocks are mapped:
- Basic Latin (00-7f)
- Latin-1 Supplement (80-ff)
- Greek & Coptic (370-3ff)
- Cyrillic (400-4ff)
- Box Drawing (2500-257f)
- Block Elements (2580-259f)
- no support for right-to-left text
- characters are represented internally as 16-bit values, making any characters
outside the basic multilingual plane complete inaccessible
- completely mono-spaced text. full-width glyphs are not available
## ANSI Support
Only sequences beginning with ^[[ are supported (Control Sequence Introducer).
Only numeric parameters are read. A control sequence with more than four
parameters will cause an unchecked buffer overflow.
The following functions are available:
A CUU Cursor Up
B CUD Cursor Down
C CUF Cursor Forward
D CUB Cursor Back
E CNL Cursor Next Line
F CPL Cursor Previous Line
G CHA Cursor Character Absolute [column]
H CUP Cursor Position
J ED Erase in Display
K EL Erase in Line
S SU Scroll Up
T SD Scroll Down
d VPA Vertical Position Absolute [row]
f HVP Horizontal Vertical Position
m SGR Select Graphics Rendition
The only available modes for SGR are 31 to set foreground colour to red and
30,32-39 set the foreground colour to black.
By StefanX16 Edit is a text editor for the Commander X16 platform.
Use plain text files Store text buffer in banked RAM (512KB to 2 MB) Handle large texts efficiently Simple modeless user interface inspired by GNU Nano Implement basic editing functions well - refrain from making the program too feature-rich Support both ISO and PETSCII modes Tested with emulator version r38. Run with the following command:
x16emu -sdcard sdcard.img -prg X16EDIT-x.x.x.PRG -run where x.x.x is the program version.
You can also run the program with the "Try it now" button. There is, however, no attached disk in the online emulator, and consequently you cannot save or open files. Also, some of the Ctrl+key sequences are not working in the online emulator. To fully test the program you still need to download and run it locally.
Please read the attached file romnotes.pdf if you want to try the ROM version.
