Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: wanted: IBM Series I display model 4978 (more...)
- I know that the 4978 is EBCDIC, most terminals referenced in the Series I
documentation are also. It should be possible to mimic the EBCDIC with an
emulator of some sort. There are a lot of special keys on the keyboard that comes
with the 4978 as well.
