BBS Terminal
« on: 21:34, 26 February 18 »
I would like to give a big thank you to Peter @ComSoft6128 , Ewen McNeill (who wrote Ansiterm) and Glenn Wilton (who wrote BBS Terminal) for making the following possible:

Peter loaned me 3 discs.

On these appears to be a modified source code to ansiterm (but i need to look in more detail to confirm that)  and the only existing source code and binaries to Glenn's own BBS Terminal (previously unreleased).

I have uploaded the BBS Terminal binaries and sources to the cpcwiki.

Thank you.

Silly question.
Would this work with the wifi card?

I haven't tried it yet, but I expect not because it's accessing the serial interface directly through it's I/O ports.
*BUT*
I was planning on modifying the source so that it would :)

It would really be nice to have a CPC based Mailbox. Today phoning is not as expensive any longer as it was some decades ago.
