Acornsoft Termulator Manual

Post by JimRussell » Tue Jun 14, 2016 8:11 am

Would like to obtain an Acornsoft Termulator manual as I want to know what escape sequences to send to control the BBC text colours and graphics. Happy with a photocopy or scan if no original is available

Googling shows a picture of the manual that looks familar - I may have one. I'll have a dig around. I'm going to a meeting in a mo, so it won't be immediately.

In ANSI mode it will recognise standard ANSI colour sequences, eg CHR$27;"[";num;"m"; where num is 30-37 for text colour 0 to 7. How many colours are actually displayed will be dependant on the screen mode you're in.

There's a sequence where you can instruct it to switch to BBC VDU mode, and then you just send standard BBC VDU sequences, for example CHR$17;CHR$n to select text colour.

Code: Select all

Thought I'd bump this to see if anyone has this manual, scan or physical, happy to scan it if someone has one.

Wow! That was a very fast OCR of the scans. You beat me by an hour in getting the manual in pdf form! :lol:

I could not upload mine as my host web manager was off-line. :( ](*,)
