As it happens I’m experimenting on a 1284 chip which while being Arduino-compatible kind of, it does have another serial port, so without disconnecting my FTDI – I hooked up the second serial port to the home control serial and fired the DEBUG command at the latter.
As you can see on the left, a perfectly usable terminal. At this point despite YEARS of VT-100 wilderness I’d mastered the colours and scrolling area controls – thanks to this handy VT-100-related link. Not all of the commands work and in order to make a character counter I had to do a custom colour save.”
