Wonder if it would be possible to build such a thing with one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001762728074.htmlI would love to find a VT100 to VGA converter
One of the reasons I've "graduated" to PE6 (sometimes) is its superior Terminal Emulator (relatively speaking). The PE5 Emulator can't even send or receive Control Codes, can't be changed in size, nor allow a return to the PE window without being closed.Now you boys have me wondering if PE5's (I can't be the only one...?) serial terminal could be useful for some simple graphical displays,
Is there any way to make the serial terminal full screen? I'd settle for bigger.
A google search came up with a couple of different projects that do this but the one that seems most commonly referred to is: Geoff's Projects - ASCII Video TerminalI would love to find a VT100 to VGA converter so I could easily do text based displays on a larger screen.
