Features

  • Support for controlling the internal modem through typed AT comments
  • Support for interfacing with the parallel port like a serial port with tribble_getty on the host side
  • Custom version of Spleen 5x8 with DOS 437 codepage characters giving a 64x14 terminal window with a status bar
  • Blinking the "New Mail" LED when modem data transfers
  • Caps Lock key can be used as a Control key and Main Menu as Escape

Compiling

Install SDCC and hex2bin.

Create an obj directory with mkdir obj and then run make.

Then transfer obj/msterm.bin to the MailStation with Loader which will put the application into 0x8000.

Flashing to dataflash

Edit Makefile to change the --code-loc argument to sdcc to expect to run from the 0x4000 area, as well as the .org line in crt0.s.

Load the compiled obj/msterm.bin to the dataflash... somehow.
