      Aha, this works: use the "console" switch
      command. Load the program to punch, attach a file to the
      paper tape punch (ptp), then type:<br><br>console
      18,1:list<br><br>It will go away and never come back, but you can
      halt the sim, detatch the ptp, and the program is in
      your file. Unfortunately putting a "console 16,1"
      right after the "list:" won't bring it back to the
      terminal, I guess it's waiting from input from the paper
      tape reader... still hacking on that, as well as
      reading basic listings IN from Linux
      files.<br><br>Whatever the case, "simh" is a neat way of hacking on an
      Altair w/o having to deal w/ the lousy hardware ;) You
      can even attach the console to a port # and telnet in
      from anywhere on your network, sort of an "Altair
      Server".<br><br>Chuck
