I just finalized my work on Telnet65 v1.0, a VT100 Telnet client. It
is based on IP65 combined with the VT100 code of Cater
(http://www.opppf.de/Cater/). Both IP65 and Cater are written in pure
6502 assembler code. For my port of Cater from the C64 to the Apple II
I implemented higly optimized code that writes directly to the 80
column text screen so the overall performance is supposed to be pretty
close to the maximum.
Telnet65 requires at least an enhanced //e. It doesn't have any fancy
feature like a scroll back buffer or a file transfer utility. Rather
it's just a plain VT100 terminal emulator. However I tried hard to map
the VT100 line drawing characters to Apple Mouse Text characters in
the best way possible.
Telnet65 supports the LANceGS, the Uthernet and the Uthernet II. With
the latter it supports the W5100 Shared Access convention
Therefore you can use Telnet65 simultaneously with the ADTPro Virtual
Ethernet Drive (http://adtpro.sourceforge.net/vedrive.html).
