    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

      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.
